Official: George Boateng signs for T-Team

The former Middlesbrough enforcer has officially signed for the Terengganu based club and becomes Peter Butler's first signing
Veteran combative midfielder, George Boateng has signed for T-Team and thus becoming new coach Peter Butler's first signing.

The former Dutch international was unveiled to the T-Team fans in a press a conference held in Wisma Darul Iman, Terengganu on Sunday afternoon.

Boateng spent the majority of his career in the Premier League with the likes of Coventry City, Middlesbrough, and Aston Villa. He made a total of 5 appearances for Championship side Nottingham Forest last season and scored 1 goal.

The veteran also revealed to Sports247, “Money is not everything to me. Butler knows what I am capable of and that is why I am here."

The capture of Boateng and the appointment of Peter Butler signal T-Team's intent in challenging for the Malaysian Super League next season after a largely disappointing finish under Yunus Alif.
