He told me about it and I felt really sad because I have kids of my own, one is 12 and one is 6 so it’s a big tragedy and it hits me hard,” Boateng said on sports segment on Joy News Prime, few hours after signing his Monza contract.
Boateng said he is ready to do anything necessary for the families to get over the loss of their children.
“Like I said I head it on the news and that is why I am here, I want to help.
Anything that is necessary, I want to help. I want to get in touch with the families. I want to give them the necessary support to feel free. I know it’s hard, and I know how hard it is for parents to bury their children,” Kevin added.
Of the eight who died, four have been buried, with the remaining four to be buried on Thursday. All the hospitalised footballers have been discharged.
The government has promised entire medical and funeral expenses.
