How much they have loved Derek

I reported a couple days ago that Derek Boateng was moving on. A high quality midfielder, he possess sound defensive abilities but has exhibited a flair for the attacking end.

The clamour from his former team FC Koln for him to stay is in full swing. Koln coach Christoph Daum was particularly pleased with his disciplined team play, good leadership qualities and that he is rarely culpable for defending errors.

And it is not at all new.


When he left his Swedish team AIK Fotboll, the country's TV4 Sport channel made this video of him to recap his time there.

For those who follow him, they might remember how he fell on the ground crying when his team AIK was relegated for only the third time since they were formed in 1896.

And it is amazing how Ghanaian players hold on to God in all interviews no matter where they are in the globe as Derek showed in the interview.


Here is another cult video of him after he left Beitar. I couldn't stop laughing at his stunts.
