Kevin-Prince Boateng has been talking about life at Barcelona following his surprise January move from Sassuolo.

The 31-year-old has joined on loan until the end of the season and can’t hide his delight at playing for Barcelona and being part of the same team as Lionel Messi.

“I can honestly tell you that playing against Messi is very difficult,” he said.

”But seeing him now on the field is magical. He can do everything on his own, it is incredible.

”Playing for this team is the most exciting thing that can happen to you and even at my age, although I’m a little old, it is a dream to play here.”

The forward has made only one appearance for his new club so far, in the 2-0 Copa del Rey defeat to Sevilla, and will be hoping to see some minutes on Wednesday against Real Madrid.
