Kevin-Prince Boateng continues being a globe-trotter of the football, and to his 32 years has initiated a new adventure in Turkey. The born footballer in Berlin West changed of airs the last day of the market of signings of winter, when the Fiorentina did official that after some months of disappointments in the Series To, would integrate in the rows of the Besiktas in quality of yielded to the end of the present season.

And the true is that the ghanés could not have better debut in the Vodafone Park of Istanbul, because it premièred with a golazo. After a week of trainings, the technical Sergen Yalçin gave him an opportunity after the rest of his duel with the Gaziantepspor, and the attacker no the desaprovechó. It took part in 30 occasions and made an only shot to door, but was decisive because it materialised a target of beautiful bill.

The tip took advantage of a pass of the death of the also veteran Gökhan Gönül to annotate the 2-0 of heel, making impossible the reaction of the guardameta and agitating to the fans in the terracings. Before his exhibition, with included somersault, Burak Yilmaz had opened the tin from the eleven metres, and in the discount Jeremain Lens rounded a goleada that keeps to the 'black eagles' in the fight by the European places.

This attainment, this yes, does not guarantee the success of the African, and this know it well in the Stadium Artemio Franchi. With the group 'violate', the ex of the Sassuolo also debuted with goal -in August of 2019-, but accumulated 14 parties more in which it remained in white. In total, his file closed with 15 commitments (14 of league and one of Coppa Italy) and 685 minutes accumulated, and with that as much as only reason for the celebration.

Even more scarce was his performance in the Barça, where did not arrive to adapt and not even contributed in the statistical section. The culés called him to turn into him alternative and give rest to Luis Suárez, but the bet fracasó because Ernesto Valverde hardly used him in four meetings (303 minutes), in which it remained more than clear that did not fit in the demanding system of game of the Barcelona.
