In an interview with Joy Fm’s Gary Al-smith, German-born Ghanaian international indicated how sad he was when he read about the offinso gory accident that took the life of eight juvenile footballers who were going to do their annual player registration from Afrancho in the Ashanti region of Ghana.
Kevin-Prince Boateng revealed that it dawned on him to offer a helping hand to the victims and bereaved family following the constant updates he had from the accident.
“I heard about it [fatal accident] and it made me really sad, to be honest,” Boateng, who was speaking shortly after his transfer to Italian Serie ’B’ side Monza on Monday, told Joy News.
“I heard about it on social media, then I called a friend of mine to ask him if it was really true and about what happened, and he told me about it and I felt really sad about it because I have two kids on my own, one is 12 [years old] and one is six, so I think it’s like a big tragedy, it hit me hard, you know.
“Every detail you know about it makes you sadder, so that’s why I’m here and I wanted to talk to you guys and wanted to let you know that I want to help.
“Anything that’s necessary that would help, I want to get in touch with the families, I want to give them the necessary thing to feel free, I know it is hard and I can’t even imagine how hard it is for parents to bury their kids but I just want to help them to free their minds.
“My condolences to all the families who have lost their children and I’m happy for the other kids who made it out safe. We will keep in touch, so please let me know what I can do and I will be ready to help.”
