Kevin-Prince Boateng joined the Catalan giants on loan from Sassuolo in January, but has not had the impact he may have wanted at the Camp Nou so far, having made just two appearances across all competitions since his arrival.

Having enjoyed a glittering career playing alongside the likes of Andrea Pirlo, Clarence Seedorf, Dimitar Berbatov and Ronaldinho, the former AC Milan midfielder has now revealed who he thinks is the best player he has had the privilege of playing alongside.
