The Ghanaian international was presented as a new FC Barcelona player this morning after the completion of his loan move from Serie A side Sassuolo.

Kevin-Prince Boateng was unveiled this morning at Camp Nou upon the completion of his loan move from Serie A side Sassuolo.

The Ghanaian international was in confident mood stating:"These are incredible days in my life. It is a great to be here and I want to win everything. That’s it.”

First team coach Ernesto Valvderde clearly feels the player is ready for action with Boateng making the 19 man squad that will travel to Sevilla in Wednesday's Copa del Rey quarter final (first leg).

Both Lionel Messi and Sergio Busquets will play no role in the cup game with the Basque coach opting to rotate the squad ahead of the LaLiga match this weekend as the Catalan giants face Girona.
