Ghanaian international explains why he chose Las Palmas

Kevin-Prince Boateng has revealed that he decided to play for the Canneries to explore the La Liga.

The former Schalke 04 striker in his return to AC Milan couldn’t break into the team and made a shocking move to Las Palmas this summer to relaunch his career.

Kevin-Prince Boateng had a good start to his La Liga career, scoring in his debut for the club in their 4-1 thrashing of Valencia.

“Why not? I had two or three opportunities as well,” Boateng told El Larguero.

“[I chose Las Palmas because] first, I had never played in Spain and secondly, the president called me and asked for me to be here.

“Besides, this is a very nice place. For me, it was the right choice.”

The 29-year-old was part of the Black Stars team that played in the 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups.
