Footballer Boateng Opens Up –I’ve Wasted A Lot Of Money On Cars, Nightclubs & Fake Friends
Having money is one thing, having the wisdom to manage money is another thing. But some will say let the money come first. Such a misguided approach to issues of money. Lol!
Former Ghanaian and AC Milan star footballer, Kevin Prince Boateng, has revealed how he couldn’t cope with the fame of being a rich professional footballer and ended up wasting his money on cars, partying at nightclubs and fake friends.
Boateng, who now plays for a smaller club, Las Palmas in Spain, became very popular when he played for AC Milan with all the big money and attention. But it’s all gone with the wind.
Speaking about this past life in an interview with Marca, the footballer said:
“For me it was impossible. From one day to another you have so much money you can buy everything. In two years I spent all my money on cars, watches, boots, nightclubs, restaurants and friends who really were not.
For a guy like me, who grew up in a poor neighbourhood and had no money, it was dangerous. In life it is important to recognise the bad. Thanks to the mistakes, I am what I am.
I was a very impulsive person and maybe I’m smarter now.”
I just hope he’s truly wiser now and not just because he’s no longer making big money like before.
