Ghanaian-German superstar, Jerome Boateng has showed gratitude to the Organisers of the maiden Annual Ghana Sports Excellence Awards, for honouring him with the BEST DIASPORA ATHLETE 2014 award.

The Bayern Munchen and German International player was adjudged the best at the British Council, in Accra, Ghana, for his remarkable performance at the World Cup 2014 and the European Champions League 2014.

He beat the likes of Danny Welbeck of Arsenal and England, and Zardes Gyasi of LA Galaxy and USA, for the coveted accolade.

In a video message to Hallmark Plus Multimedia, organisers and founders of the Annual Ghana Sports Excellence Awards, Boateng said “I want to thank you so much for the award, it’s a big honour for me. It’s a really big honour for me to have an award from my fatherland”.

Although Boateng missed the awards ceremony because of Bayern Munchen’s pre-season training in Qatar, he extended greetings to the people of Ghana.

The 26-year-old receives the prize as a reward not just for his on-pitch performances, which have helped the Bavarians top the Bundesliga table last season, but also for his work with the Living a Dream project run by Pro Kinderhilfe, a children’s charity and associate organisation of the UNESCO foundation.

Boateng assisted in the building of a compound with a soccer pitch and educational facilities for impoverished children when Germany travelled to Brazil for the FIFA World Cup last summer, and he was in fact one of many figures from German soccer to make a charitable contribution to the country while it hosted the tournament.

He has made 17 appearances in all competitions this season and scored one goal, against former club Manchester City FC in the UEFA Champions League.

Jerome has already been awarded with the prestigious Audi Generation Award last month

All eyes on the Boateng Brothers as they clash at 2014 World Cup. Where Black Stars of Ghana goes at the World Cup, drama follows.

For those who missed the Germany Jerome Boateng and Ghana’s Kevin-Prince World Cup clash last night these are some photos for you to enjoy!.

Boateng Brothers World Cup clash

There wasn’t any sibling rivalry on the pitch, fans from the brothers expected some drama on the pitch but were very disappointed because both brothers were very professional.

The was no  “fight to the death” as predicted  by Ghana’s Kevin-Prince Boateng. Ghana played a very good game resulting in Ghana 2 Germany 2.

If you think is difficult for fans to watch, one can imagine how their parents might have felt watching them. Very proud of their sons playing such historic game.

Jerome Boateng Germany defender Jerome Boateng admits to having a few mixed feelings ahead of tonight’s FIFA World Cup clash with Ghana. However, it is not so much his position which is causing Boateng such heartache, but the fact he will be up against his brother Kevin-Prince Boateng and his father’s homeland.

“My father tells me that games in Ghana are like bank holidays, and my family members from Germany say the same,” he said. “The whole family come together and have a good time. It’s very important for me to visit Ghana one day, and that makes it all the more regrettable that I’ve not managed to yet.

“Such a large part of my family lives there and it interests me to know how they play, what conditions the people have there. From my family members, I know that they all watch my games. I know how much they get involved.”

Boateng could prove quite unpopular among his family on Saturday with a win for Germany potentially enough to send Ghana home after just two matches. He has already cut off all contact with half-brother Kevin-Prince, the Schalke midfielder who may be lining up against him. That was more intentional, however.

“It is a bit strange but I’m not missing our regular contact,” he said on the website of the German federation. “The World Cup is a special situation and I think it just wouldn’t be right if we remained in touch with each other. I am with Germany and my full focus is on my tasks here.”

Brother Kevin-Prince is not a certainty to start having been left on the bench for Ghana’s first game – a 2-1 defeat to the United States.

It is the third time Germany have met Ghana

 

Jerome Boateng - Kevin-Prince BoatengBoateng  brothers were both born in Berlin, but in 2009, Schalke’s Kevin-Prince, 27, opted to play for the country of his father. They will face each other on when Germany plays Ghana tonight.

One thing is for sure brotherly love will be forgotten tonight when  Germany’s Jerome Boateng faces his sibling Ghana’s Kevin-Prince Boateng predicting a ‘fight to the death’.

This is not the first time the brothers have played each other at a World Cup.

In South Africa, they set a record by becoming the first brothers to play against each other at a World Cup finals.

Jerome Boateng is hoping to play for the Black Stars, Ghana’s national team. He has applied for a Ghanaian passport, which is only a formality at this point. The Ghana Football Association is depending on him to be a member of its team when it heads to South Africa for the World Cup in June.

Wouldn’t miss it for the world!
