Black Stars captain, Asamoah Gyan, has heaped praises on Black Stars newboy Emmanuel Boateng following his display in last Sunday’s La Liga game against Barcelona.
Boateng scored his first career hat-trick as his side Levante ended Barcelona’s unbeaten run by winning 5-4.
“I don’t really know Emmanuel Boateng personally but have seen him in Ghana,” Gyan stated on Hot FM.
“I have been monitoring him at Levante for some time now and I can say he is a good player.”
“I watched the game against Barcelona also and he proved to be that strong and energetic player. I saw him some few months ago, his power is his strong mark and very good at taking on defenders.”
Boateng has scored seven goals in 29 appearances in all competitions for the Frogs.
The 22 year-old forward has been handed his maiden Black Stars call up for this month’s (May 30th) friendly game against Japan.
