How about that Kevin-Prince Boateng on Saturday, huh?
Boateng – an angry man
Make no mistake about it, The Spoiler occasionally gets to taste the high life, enjoying luxury jacket potatoes at lunchtime, the odd cup of Earl Grey, and – just this weekend – a high ranking member of the team had a fun day out at Old Trafford, to watch United thump Portsmouth 5-0.
One piece of information from the game, which appears to have floated beneath the football radar, is that Portsmouth’s hotheaded midfielder, Kevin-Prince Boateng, stormed off the pitch with about five minutes to go, at a time when all of the substitutes had already been used – leaving his side to see out the remainder of the humiliation with just ten men.
Does anyone know exactly what happened?
Portsmouth had, of course, played a shocker, and Boateng’s decision to remove his shirt and march down the tunnel with one of the trainers in hot pursuit, suggests that the man – like a wealthy child who no longer wants his stupid friends littering his playroom – had simply had enough.
It wouldn’t be the first time Boateng had bubbled over, either. Just a few days ago he was fined £50,000 for thirteen counts of criminal damage in Berlin, thanks to a ill-thought-out decision to smash up some other people’s cars.
And, Spurs man, Henry Redknapp, recently said this of the player:
“I didn’t know much about Boateng when I arrived at Tottenham but I was listening to what other people were telling me about his character and the way he behaved off the field.”
“And to be honest they weren’t painting a very good picture of him.”
