“AGE IS JUST A NUMBER” – KEVIN PRINCE BOAT …
Kevin – Prince Boateng is bubbling with joy having found the net twice as Monza decimated Virtus Entella 5-0 in Tuesday’s Serie B encounter.
Fuelled by a 2-0 win at Venezia last time out, the White and Reds brought the Black Devils to their knees at Stadio Brianteo, with the former Ghana international finding the net twice.
The 33-year-old began the harvest of goals in the 10th minute after beating goalkeeper Alessandro Russo thanks to an assist from Giuseppe Bellusci.
In the 29th minute of the five-goal thriller, he completed his brace after being released by Marco Ezio Fossati – which he accompanied with an acrobatic goal celebration.
Mario Sampirisi’s double and Dany Mota’s second-half strike completed the rout as Vincenzo Vivarini’s returned home with heads bowed low.
After a notable shift, Boateng was replaced by Davide Frattesi with 22 minutes left to play in the encounter.
Since his two-goal heroics against Werder Bremen on November 9, 2013, during his time at Schalke 04, the midfielder cum forward had found it a near-impossible task to score more than one goal in a game.
And having broken the seven-year jinx, the former AC Milan, Barcelona, and Borussia Dortmund took to social media to celebrate.
