Kevin-Prince Boateng, an experienced midfielder, has been given a one-year contract extension by Hertha Berlin after helping the club avoid relegation from the Bundesliga.
Boateng, 35, put in a valiant performance to help Hertha win the play-off second leg 2-0 in Hamburg last month, ensuring survival.
“We have seen the importance Prince has in our team, not only in the relegation (play-off),” Hertha managing director Fredi Bobic said on Wednesday.“
“He leads by example and pulls everyone along. These are exactly the qualities we need in the coming season.”
He had been left on the bench for Hertha’s 1-0 first-leg home defeat.
After graduating from the youth academy to the senior team in 2005, the Ghana international began his career at Hertha Berlin.
After playing for more than a dozen clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur, Borussia Dortmund, AC Milan, and Fiorentina, he returned to Hertha in July 2021, making 18 appearances in Germany’s top flight last season.
