KEVIN-PRINCE BOATENG had a chance to join Lazio and he has no regrets that he didn’t.
The Ghanaian midfielder has proved to be one of Milan’s best players this season. He’s currently co-owned between Milan and Genoa and desires to keep playing with the Rossoneri colors.
Boateng has revealed today that he was on the verge of joining Lazio from Portsmouth but he doesn’t regret having joined Genoa (and moving immediately to Milan).
“I was a step away from joining Lazio,” Boateng told the Messaggero newspaper. “I met with President Claudio Lotito, but I turned him down. Seeing how my season has gone, I have no regrets.”
Milan are one point away from winning the Scudetto and Boa promised few weeks ago that he would make a Michael Jackson tribute with a moonwalk. Now he suggests that he could do something else.
“I could get a new tattoo to celebrate the Scudetto, but also the Coppa Italia. However, the victory I want more is a contract with Milan,” he said in an interview with il Corriere dello Sport.
Paulo Henrique Ganso could join Milan, but Boateng doesn’t fear from competition for the trequartista role.
“I don’t know who will arrive, but I’m not moving from the attacking midfield. If someone new arrives then we’ll be in competition for a place,” the 23-year-old said.
On rumours linking Milan with Michael Essien, Boa said: “We are great friends. Essien is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world. I’d love to play alongside him, but I’ll leave it up to Milan to decide.”
