Derek Boateng wants to end his career with Liberty Professionals

Former Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng wants to end his playing career at boyhood club Liberty Professionals.

The 34-year-old came through the club's youth team before tasting his first European adventure at Greek side Kalamata between 1999-2001.

And the former Fulham midfielder, who has announced his retirement from international football, has revealed his desire to end his career where it started.

“I have made up my mind to play for Liberty before I retire, he told Metro TV.

“Liberty is where I started from and I think that is where I will end my career.

“They gave me the platform and I think it will be good to show them how loyal I am to them.

“So hopefully I will play for Liberty before I hang my boots.”

Boateng played 47 times for Ghana and scored once.

He represented the West Africans at the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany.
