KP Boateng becomes first Ghanaian to win La Liga title

Kevin-Prince Boateng has become the first Ghanaian player in history to win the La Liga title.

Despite making only three competitive appearances for Barcelona since his arrival, the 32-year-old has carved his name in Spanish football folklore.

Barcelona were crowned kings of La Liga for the 26th time after beating Levante 1-0 at the Camp Nou on Saturday night.

The Ghanaian watched the entire game from the bench as Lionel Messi scored the goal which wrapped up the 2018/2019 title with three games to spare.

Boateng joined the Catalan giants on a six-month loan deal from Sassuolo in January. The agreement included an €8m purchase option.

The transfer also made him the first Ghanaian ever to sign for the club.

FootballMadeInGhana.com understands that Barcelona will not trigger the buy-option which means the former AC Milan forward is set to return to Italy at the end of his loan stint in July.

With Michael Essien, Mubarak Wakaso and Thomas Partey, all making huge impacts in the La Liga without winning the title, Kevin’s feat is historically unprecedented.
