Fiorentina’s Kevin-Prince Boateng has expressed his regret about the lack of professionalism he showed when he started playing professional football.

Germany-born footballer Kevin-Prince Boateng started playing professionally in 2004.

And since then he has been growing as a player rapidly.

But he does have some regrets.

“I’ll go back and say: I didn’t treat football as a job,” he told La Repubblica.

“I was an idiot. I had talent, but I trained the bare minimum, an hour on the field. I was the last to arrive and the first to leave. I’d be out with friends.”

“I had money, I lived like a king. I’d never been to the gym. That changes your later career,” he added.

Ronaldo proclaims: “I am proud to be Portuguese”

Cristiano Ronaldo is by far his country's best footballer of all times, eclipsing the likes of Eusebio and Luis Figo.

“I bought three cars in one day when I was at Tottenham: a Lamborghini, a Hummer and a Cadillac.”

“To the youngsters, I tell them: ‘You cannot buy happiness.’ I didn’t play, I had family problems, I was out of the squad.”

“I was looking for happiness in material things: a car makes you happy for a week. I bought three to be happy for three weeks,” he commented.
