Ghana’s Kevin Prince Boateng played a key role as an assistant manager of Hertha Berlin in their away win at Bochum on Sunday.

Although, Boateng climbed off the bench to feature on the 73rd minute, he was in the dugout coaching and issuing instructions to the players on what to do whiles the game was ongoing.


The 34-year-old replaced Algerian-French striker Ishak Belfodil in the 73rd minute as Hertha BSC pummeled Bochum 3-1 at the Vonovia-Ruhrstadion.


After a topsy-turvy start to the season and loosing three matches at a go, they flicked the back of VFL Bochum to the ground and just before half time, Suat Seedar scores two quick goals in 37th and 43rd minutes respectively.


Bochum pulled one back on the 59th minute through Simon Zoller, but French-Comorian teenager Myziane Maolida scored to restore Hertha’s two goal lead with 12 minutes remaining to bring proceedings to an end.


Manager Pál Dárdai could not hide his joy as he praised the leadership of the Ghanaian as Hertha won their first game of the season.


Dárdai said; “Prince is just an incredibly great person. He helps everyone, is always available to help and advise. Everyone really listens to him. He is doing Hertha very well. But what it means for us now is for us to win our next game against Greuther Fürth.”


The attacking midfielder rejoined his boyhood club from Serie B club AC Monza and signed a contract running until 2022.
