12 years ago

Kevin-Prince Boateng is proud to have a league title to his name after AC Milan clinched their first title in seven years.

Needing a point at the Stadio Olimpico against Roma, Milan emerged triumphant after a goalless draw on Saturday to end Inter Milan's five-year reign.

Boateng, a favourite amongst the fans in his first season has hailed the resolve of his teammates in securing the title.

"Winning the title makes me proud but now I just want to rest," said the Ghanaian international.

"I've really had to push myself but I'm physically and mentally tired. I need a holiday."

"It's difficult to find words for the way I'm feeling right now," the 24-year-old told Reuters. "It's unbelievable. I want to dedicate the title to my wife and child."

"We've put up with a lot of pressure in the past few months. It's not been easy but we showed we can do it."

The Ghana international was also quick to compliment his colleagues for helping him settle into the Rossoneri side.

"It's been an unbelievable year of ups and downs, but it was not easy in the beginning. I had to get into the team, learn a new language and a different style of football.

"My team mates helped me along the way and it's a great feeling to have something to show for all the effort."

Boateng and his colleagues can win a double this season as they seek to reach the final of the Italian Cup. But Milan would need to go past Palermo in a midweek semi-final second leg match.
