Boateng put Euro campaign ahead of honeymoon

Kevin-Prince Boateng hopes to finally go on his honeymoon after helping Tottenham Hotspur break into the Champions League next May.

The 20-year-old German midfielder got married two days after signing from Hertha Berlin but got straight into pre-season preparations rather than go away with his wife Jenny.

Boateng has promised her a honeymoon next summer, by which time he hopes Spurs will be established in the top four of the Premier League.

'With this team we can go to fourth place and maybe I think higher, if we get luck,' said the youngster. 'This team is great.'

Spurs beat Sevilla to the signature of Boateng, with the midfielder now honing his match-sharpness before he starts to fight his way into Martin Jol's starting XI.

It means he may be watching on the sidelines at the Stadium of Light when Spurs start their campaign against Sunderland on Saturday.

'I didn't play any pre-season games in Germany and I need a little bit of time,' he said.

'I think in maybe two or three weeks but don't put me under pressure because it is my first season, if I play 10 games or so I will be happy.'

Boateng can still play for Ghana but wants to use the spotlight at White Hart Lane to put him in contention for a first cap for Germany, where he grew up.

His upbringing in a tough area of Berlin has seen him nicknamed the 'Ghetto Kid', and he has had 12 tattoos since he decided against a life of crime.

'The people there did not have much money and only did criminal things,' said the Germany Under-21 midfielder. 'When I was 14 or 15 there were two ways - to go the criminal way or play football. My heart and my mind said to play football.'

One of his tattoos is of his wife carrying a gun, and he joked: 'It was when I told her the honeymoon was in Tottenham!'

Boateng has footballing pedigree as he is a relative of the late Helmut Rahn, who scored the winner in the 1954 World Cup final.

He is hoping to emulate former Germany striker Jurgen Klinsmann as a Spurs hero, but first wants to offer a creative spark in Jol's midfield.

'Klinsmann was a big hero here and I want to see if I can do it also,' he said.

'My dream position is number 10 in midfield, but I can be an attacking player on the left or right, it's not a problem. I think I'm creative, the coach said to me that I can help and I want to do that with all the positive things I can do.'
