Kevin-Prince Boateng will go to the end of the world if Jurgen Klopp asks him to. That’s what he told Goal ahead of the clash with Barcelona.
Both coincided in 2008-09 at Borussia Dortmund.
“He knows exactly what to say to get a player to die for him,” said Prince. “He has that more than anyone else. You could see it at Dortmund and now at Liverpool too.
“Including players who aren’t starters, they have the feeling that they are special. With him as coach, there’s a special collective sentiment.”
Boateng also praised Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who he says should start for Germany ahead of Manuel Neuer.
“For me, he deserves to be it (the starter),” said Prince. “He shines in all of the games and has so much calm with the ball at his feet. I don’t want to say that I desire any ill to Neuer, he’s an extraordinary goalkeeper too. But in this moment of changes in the German national team, it would be right for Marc-Andre to be the No 1. He deserves it.”
