Making this revelation in an interview with La Repubblica Newspaper, Boateng also said he spent lavishly to the extent of buying three expensive and powerful cars all in a day.
He however further advised the youth saying happiness cannot be bought.
“I bought three cars in one day when I was at Tottenham: a Lamborghini, a Hummer and a Cadillac. To the youngsters, I tell them: “You cannot buy happiness," Boateng said.
“I will say I didn’t treat football as a job. I was an idiot. I had talent, but I trained the bare minimum, an hour on the field. I was the last to arrive and the first to leave. I’d be out with friends.
"I had money, I lived like a king. I’d never been to the gym. That changes your later career,” he stressed.
"I didn’t play, I had family problems, I was out of the squad. I was looking for happiness in material things: a car makes you happy for a week. I bought three to be happy for three weeks., " he added.
Meanwhile, Boateng has played two world cups for Ghana; 2010 and 2014. He has won five trophies across his career including the League Cup at Tottenham and the La Liga title with Barcelona last season.
