Altstar Kevin-Prince Boateng (35) could have a future at Hertha BSC despite his expiring contract – but not on the pitch.

Management level: Kevin-Prince Boateng’s path could lead straight to the post of sports director in Berlin, as reported by “Bild”. At least there were rumors around the Olympic Stadium on Wednesday, according to which Boateng should be offered a new one-year contract. He would then swap the soccer shoes for patent-leather shoes and take over the fortunes of the professional team.

Mole hunt: What sounds plausible at first seems rather improbable on closer inspection. Rather, there is the suspicion that the message was deliberately launched internally at Hertha to unmask moles that pierce internals to the outside.

Indications: Managing director Fredi Bobic made corresponding indications at the general meeting on Sunday: “I have no idea how many false reports I deliberately produced to see where the holes are internally.” In the reports about Boateng’s future as sports director, there could be another to be added.
