Ghana midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng believes he’s a strong leader that provides great value to the Serie A club.
He returned to AC Milan in the January Transfer Window after falling out with Bundesliga club Schalke 04.
Boateng first played in the 1-1 away draw against Roma, and then scored in the 2-0 win against Fiorentina.
“I hope to always bring something to the team, also in terms of character,” Boateng told Milan News.
“I’m always positive and try to let everyone realise we must step on the field with joy.
“That’s what happened with Inter [3-0 victory] and my speech fired up the team. We’re all on the same page. We think the same way. That’s why we played well and won.”
However he’s only made five substitute appearances since his move and hasn’t started yet.
“I’m working to soon get back to 100 per cent fitness, then we’ll see if I can start a game,” Boateng added.
“I’ll like to play more, but I have all the time I need to make my mark. I’ll like to stay in Milan for as long as possible. I want to prove that I’m important to this team.
“I just told the coach that I’ll play wherever he needs me to. Obviously, everyone has preferences but I won’t say that here, or tomorrow, there’ll be controversy in the papers.”
