Boateng Explodes At Schalke

Schalke have won three games in a row without conceding a goal since Kevin-Prince Boateng joined them from AC Milan in a surprise move on transfer deadline day.

The Ghana international scored and was pivotal in all the action, as the Bundesliga side steamrolled Steaua Bucharest 3-0 in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The German media is now talking about the “Boateng effect” as the 26-year-old makes his mark at his new side.

Boateng’s box-to-box ability has already established him as a cult hero at Schalke, and his new manager cannot speak highly enough of him.

"Kevin-Prince does not shy away from a challenge easily," manager Jens Keller said after the midfielder’s star showing against Steaua.

"He always makes himself available and demands the ball. He talks to the team and leads it and it is very clear that he has already become a very important player in this team."

Boateng meanwhile, is relishing his new role as the darling of Schalke, and is determined to carry on powering the team forward.

"We have got every reason to be satisfied with this win," he said.

"Everyone in the dressing room is very happy with this excellent team performance. We know we have some tough games coming up but we are prepared."

One of the tough games coming up for Schalke is a Bundesliga showdown with their biggest rivals on Saturday- German champions Bayern Munich.

As former Schalke ‘keeper and now Bayern number one, Manuel Neuer, will attest, there is no love lost between the two sides.

Boateng will be coming up against his younger brother Jerome in the match, and he if he can help Schalke send Jerome and his champion team-mates home with bruised egos, KPB’s coronation as the new prince of Schalke will be complete.
