Ghanaian attacking midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng says he could have played for a team like Real Madrid had he worked harder and capitalised fully on his talent.
The 31-year-old, who is currently on the books of Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt, has represented the likes of Tottenham Hotspur, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund in his club career.
He was also a squad member for Ghana at the last two World Cup tournaments, yet there is still the sense that he could have achieved so much more in the sport.
"In my opinion, without meaning to come across as arrogant, I could have played for Real Madrid, but I didn't do enough to achieve that," he told Bild.
"However, I have reached a point where I am relaxed and satisfied with my career."
Boateng, however, has been an important figure in Frankfurt’s impressive campaign which could end with them securing Champions League football for 2018/19.
