Ghana forward Kevin-Prince Boateng frivolously stated that he could be Sassuolo’s Cristiano Ronaldo in the coming Serie A campaign.
The 31-year-old joined Sassuolo on a two-year-deal earlier in the summer transfer window and hopes to make history at the club.
The former AC Milan attacker has already established himself firmly despite his short stay at the club after registering five goals in two goals in their pre-season training games.
When was asked if he could become Roberto de Zerbi’s side Cristiano Ronaldo in the forthcoming season, Boateng said, “Am I the Cristiano Ronaldo of Sassuolo? Maybe yes, but I’m 500 goals away,” he told Sky Sport Italia.
“I’d like to beat him, but first you have to beat Juventus and they have some other very good players.”
“Besides, I can’t do it all alone. I need the help of my teammates; I can’t fight anyone by himself.”
“His arrival proves that Serie A is very important, the best player in the world has arrived here and we can only enjoy his ‘landing’ because he’ll show us things we’ve never seen in Italy.”
