'There was only ever one Milan' - Kevin-Prince Boateng on rejecting Inter move

The Ghana international had memorable stints at the Rossoneri and claims he rejected a move to their crosstown rivals

Eintracht Frankfurt’s Kevin-Prince Boateng has revealed that Inter Milan wanted to sign him, but he opted against the move.

The versatile midfielder enjoyed two fruitful spells at AC Milan where he won the Italian league and the Super Cup.

And the Ghana international claimed crosstown rivals, Inter, among other sides, were on his radar but ‘there was ever one Milan’ he could play for.

“In terms of emotion and affection, my three years at Milan are worth 10 for many others,” Boateng told La Gazette dello Sport.

“I could’ve dealt with certain moments better, especially in my third season, but I lacked someone off the field who could help me. Nonetheless, I have no regrets, as I played important games, won and scored at the last second and heard the San Siro roar for my goal one last time.

“It’s true, Inter wanted me, but as far as I was concerned, there was only ever one Milan. I could’ve chosen other clubs too, not just Inter, but I'm a man of my word.”
