AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng says he is thrilled with the achivements of his brother Jerome Boateng.

The half brothers were both born in Berlin to separate mothers, but in 2009, Schalke's Kevin-Prince, 28, opted to play for the country of his father, Ghana.

Jerome, the younger of the two, has won three German Bundesliga titles, one Champions League crown and one Fifa World Cup for both club and country; with Kevin-Prince boasting of just one Serie A title to his name.

Boateng told SID:

"He plays for the best football team in the world. Germany is the best team in the world."

"[Germany] play football with the false nine and without proper striker If they play like in 2014, they are also European champions . "

In South Africa 2010,Kevin-Prince and Jerome set a record by becoming the first brothers to play against each other at a World Cup finals.
