Fresh in my mind (for obvious reasons given my allegiances) is Boateng’s screamer which sent Milan on their way to a 4-0 thumping of Arsenal in 2012.
Add to that another belter against Barcelona and Kevin Prince Boateng had announced himself on the European stage. Being part of a talented AC Milan side that included the likes of Zlatan Ibrahimovic & Thiago Silva, Boateng was amongst the best and it wasn’t long before Schalke came calling.
This all seems very recent though.
Fast forward two years however and the form which made the German outfit pay €10 million soon deserted the Ghanaian. Always one to be the troublemaker Boateng soon fell out of favour at Schalke and despite playing 46 games in the Bundesliga only scored 6 goals.
Many thought it would only go down from here with Boateng also having a very public divorce, but it seems Milan are willing to give the player another go. Always one to buy back a player AC Milan are yet again signing an old hero and it is hoped he will be the same Kevin that left.
If he gets back to his best which is very possible at the age of just 28 i’m sure his future will be bright at the San Siro.
