Coming to his career has always been fascinating. Boateng has played for some of Europe’s biggest clubs like AC Milan and Barcelona. Sport Bild recently asked him about his former managers, and he gave a glowing review of Jurgen Klopp following the player’s nine appearances for Borussia Dortmund in 2009.
He’s a great guy and also a great coach. Most of the time, you only have one or the other – Klopp has both! He knows how to grab you. I don’t know how he does it, but he gets it done. That’s why every team will do everything for him.
He also praised Massimiliano Allegri during his time at AC Milan, where he played 100 times. Boateng said:
We had a good time together, and he’s grown so much since then. Those results prove he’s a great coach.
When asked about his time under Roberto di Matteo at Schalke, he replied:
The disappointment with Di Matteo grew quickly – not just for me, but for the whole team. No tension, no aggressiveness, no emotions – he stood on the edge of the field and radiated that certain nothing.
