Ghanaian midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has admitted that he is loving life at his new club AC Milan, after joining them on an initial one-season loan deal from Genoa (the contract has now been updated to ‘co-ownership’ status) just days after leaving Portsmouth for the Serie A.

The former Portsmouth player has quickly become a favourite at the San Siro thanks to his tireless running and is already a fixture in coach Massimiliano Allegri‘s first-team plans.

Speaking to Milan Channel, Boateng said;

“The fans immediately understood my efforts on the field and the moment I stepped on to the pitch I heard them shouting my name. It was an exceptional feeling, I’ve come close to scoring my first goal but I’m sure it will come soon.”

The 23-year-old also revealed that he has been bestowed with a new nickname by his Milan teammates,  ‘il treno senza freni’ – the train without brakes;

Thiago Silva gave me that name after the first game I played with Milan. I also get along well with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, as we joke around and I hope one day a beautiful friendship can come of it.”

A word of warning Kevin, you should NEVER turn your back on the Zlatan.

    Yeah, nice one Kevin – hardly “without brakes” – seem to remember you stopping at Hilsea Halt when at Pompey or definitely one stop short of Fratton anyway! Always a legend in your own lunch-time! Now the hard work begins..

    Wish him peace, love and long life as long as Genoa sort out actually paying us for him! Come to think of it, Mussolini’s grandson, Senor Berlusconi could look behind the prime minister’s sofa for the wonga.

    Only Pompey could “sell” a player to a club with even less money than us! Feel uncomfortable about any change in ownership details on the contract and presumably with the undoubted quality of legal advice Portsmouth had on this sale, we would have definitely inclded a clause for us to be consulted as a 3rd party with pecuniary interest in such an issue. Feel very uncomfortable dealing with Milan the way they secured themselves Mark Hateley all those years ago and ended up not paying the agreed sum with us. God forbid that Storrie actually had any hand in this in his near £90K “consultancy” role. That would be just too much.
