Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng hit a superb winning goal 10 minutes from time to seal Eintracht Frankfurt's 2-1 comeback victory at his ex-club Hertha Berlin in the Bundesliga on Sunday.

In falling snow at Berlin's Olympic Stadium, the 30-year-old Boateng unleashed a superb shot from the edge of the area to leave Hertha goalkeeper Rune Jarstein with no chance.

But the Berlin-born Frankfurt midfielder muted his celebrations having started his career at Hertha.

"It feels good to have won, because we have an important game coming up against Bayern Munich," said Boateng with Frankfurt hosting the Bundesliga leaders next Saturday.

"Personally, that was perhaps the weakest performance of my career, so I am glad we won."

Boateng had to tread carefully in a bad-tempered game after picking up a yellow card with just nine minutes gone, but Frankfurt coach Niko Kovac, who played alongside Boateng for Hertha a decade ago, left him on.

"We talked about it during the break, but the coach knows I have enough experience to hold myself back a bit," explained Boateng.

The result lifted Frankfurt to eighth, while Hertha are 11th and five points from the relegation places. © AFP
