Kevin-Prince Boateng has said goodbye to Barcelona after his loan spell with the club ended.

The forward joined the club in January in a real shock move, and parent club Sassuolo had claimed Barcelona would try to sign him permanently.

That always seems unlikely given Boateng only made four appearances and did not manage a single goal in his short spell with the club.

He has now taken time out to say goodbye and thank supporters with a message on Instagram.
