Football: No love lost as Boateng brothers square off
BERLIN (AFP) - Schalke 04's Kevin-Prince Boateng has promised there will be no love lost when he comes up against his half-brother, Bayern Munich centre-back Jerome Boateng, in Saturday's Bundesliga clash.
Bayern, second in the table behind Borussia Dortmund, are at Gelsenkirchen's Veltins Arena to take on resurgent Schalke, who have won their last four games after a poor start.
Since his arrival from AC Milan last month, Kevin-Prince Boateng has helped lift Schalke up to ninth with the Ghana international adding some steel to their attacking midfield.
The 26-year-old scored the winner at Mainz last Saturday in a 1-0 victory and hit the second goal in Wednesday's 3-0 Champions League victory over Steaua Bucharest.
