Girlfriend blames Boateng injury on sex

The girlfriend of German-Ghanaian footballer Kevin Prince Boateng has offered Italian media an unusual explanation for his recent thigh strain: the 24-year-old AC Milan midfielder loves sex too much.

“He’s always [injured and unable to play] because we have sex seven to ten times a week,” model and TV presenter Melissa Satta told the Italian edition of Vanity Fair Magazine. “I'm afraid that's the reason for the strain.”

Boateng has played for AC Milan since August of 2010. But the Berlin-born midfielder is perhaps best known for playing for the Ghanaian national football team at the 2010 World Cup after seriously injuring effectively ending the international career of Germany captain Michael Ballack. Boateng's half-brother Jerome played for Germany at the tournament.

Though Boateng is known for explosive moves on the football pitch, he has lately been wracked by repeated injuries – his most recent thigh strain will likely put him out for about four weeks.

In the meantime his girlfriend is expecting him to spend some time with her.

“I hate foreplay, I want to get right down to business. My favourite position is on top so I can take control,” she said.

This is news?! I thought "The Local" was a news source...not a tabloid.

After finishing the article many may be having a sigh of relief.

"!Oh only thigh injuries nothing else, Good god am not a footballer, no issues" :)

What is the problem or issue here girlfriend?

The man is human and not your sex Geldautomat machine. He is giving you too much sex?

7 to 10 times a week and no charge? Some people get paid or have to pay for this type of weekly activity.

You get it for free and complain? Typical and I assume European woman, pay me or sex me black man.

What is your problem? When the man is injured, no paycheck, no sex? I hope he reads this and dumps you.

read it again. it doesn't seem that she was complaining, just explaining...

I think she was bragging

She must be sadomasochist to willingly inflict that much damage on her partner "a very fit sportsman". And a rather uncaring wench to boot. As she seems to be damaging his career as well as his body.

She needs to get a V8 powered toy and just lock herself in the house. Or have kids. That might slow her down.

Good call

I get it... we did surveys for The Local last week and now they are giving us what they think we want... tabloids. What a let down... The only thing still interesting is reading the comments section... so I guess I will stick around until the next survey when folks demand real news again!

I'm sorry, if I was his girlfriend I would be complaining about 7-10 times a week for such a fit guy, does not seem like bragging.... :D
