Former Ghana international Kevin-Prince Boateng has praised the team spirit at Eintracht Frankfurt.

Boateng’s side suffered a 1-0 loss at the hands of VfB Stuttgart this past weekend, but they remain placed in the top four of the Bundesliga and on course to qualify for the UEFA Champions League next season.

"The most important thing is that we have a we-feeling,” said Boateng, who has scored five goals in 23 league appearances this season.

“You can see it from everyone jumping off the bench when we score and win a game.

“That's the way it goes, we have no stinking boots on the team, everyone tries to help the other.”

The 30-year-old also had praise for coach Nico Kovac, who has done a great job to turn Frankfurt into one of Germany’s best teams.

"You know that Niko Kovac is a tough coach - and he makes us work hard," said the Ghanaian, who added: “He pushes me.”

Frankfurt will return to Bundesliga action on Saturday when they host Hannover 96.
