Boateng looking to impress

The 22-year-old joined Pompey from Tottenham for £4million last week.

“I think for me it’s a great move. I’m very happy,” he told The News.

“The second Tottenham game I started was at Fratton Park. I know the crowd is crazy and they just need us to win.

“I remember I nearly scored but David James saved it. I remember the crowd were just crazy.

“When you see the quality in training, we have a lot of players with experience, a lot of young players.

“They want to show they are hungry so I know we just need to stick together and show we are a real team.

“I couldn’t really show it at Spurs – now is my time to show people. It was a tough time for me at Spurs.

“I always train hard and give my best but it didn’t work out. You just have to get a new chance to show what you can do.

“I had the whole pre-season with Spurs. I never really had the chance to show what I can do, and I hope I can get the chance at Portsmouth now and show people.”
