Boateng's foray into the hospitality industry comes after he called time on his international career earlier this month after failing to earn a call-up to the senior national team (Black Stars) since 2013.

The facility is named 'MENDIATA HOTEL" - and located near the Achimota Golf Club in Accra.

Ghanasoccernet reports that the name of the luxurious facility was coined from the first names of his three daughters – Mendy, Taisha and Terick.
