Hertha BSC officially confirmed a one-year-contract for native son Kevin-Prince Boateng on Wednesday evening.
"Kevin-Prince Boateng knows Hertha BSC, the Bundesliga, and Berlin," Bobic said in a statement, "He doesn't need a long acclimatization period. With his leadership qualities in the locker room and off the pitch, he'll be an enormous asset to our team. On the pitch, he has proven himself at the highest level over many years. We've got the total package with this transfer."
"Hertha is just not any club for me," Boateng said in his own statement, "I'm here to give something back. I owe my entire career to this club. I've never forgotten that. Hertha has always been in my heart."
In announcing the transfer, German footballing magazine Kicker confirms that Hertha were indeed also interested in Kevin-Prince's famous half-brother Jerome. Kicker's journalists nevertheless report that the former Bayern star is now likely headed abroad for the 2021/22 campaign.
