Ghana international, Kevin-Prince Boateng says his move to the Spanish Premier La-Liga was just to have fun and nothing else.

The former AC Milan star joined La Union Deportiva for the 2016-17 season.

Boateng, who currently plays for Besiktas scored 10 goals in La Liga as the Gran Canaria outfit finished 11th before joining Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany.

"In Spain, I was at a point in my career that everyone was wondering how I was," Boateng said in an Instagram Live session with Thierry Henry.

"I went there without a goal, I just wanted to have fun and play football. When it becomes work, football loses a little love.

"I asked where Las Palmas was and when they replied Gran Canaria, I thought "but are they holidays or football?"

Following his impressive output with the Serie A side, the former AC Milan star made a shock move to FC Barcelona on a six months loan with an option of making the deal permanent.

"Barcelona is fantastic, I was 32 years old, I was back on the big stages. It was unbelievable," Boateng continued.

"When I signed I had the car keys with my name, then I had the press conference.

"The only player who can win all the games is [Lionel] Messi."
