Ghana international, Kevin-Prince Boateng has reiterated that he could be Sassuolo’s Cristiano Ronaldo in the upcoming Serie A campaign.
The former Las Palmas star joined the Italian Serie A side on a two-year deal earlier in the summer amid joy amongst the Neroverdi fans.
The 30-year-old attacker has already hit the ground running after scoring 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 Sports 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.”
