The 36-year old who played for close to fifteen clubs in Europe including FC Barcelona added that his second biggest regrets in his career is leaving Hertha at the wrong time.

Before announcing his retirement, Boateng played for Hertha BSC and left the club after two years following their relegation from the Bundesliga.
