Prince-Oppong Boateng, father of newly signed Barcelona star Kevin-Prince Boateng says he is the happiest father on earth after his son completed a loan move to FC Barcelona.
The 31-year-old returns to LaLiga for his second spell after impressing at Las Palmas during the 2016-17 campaign and Barcelona can purchase him outright for a reported €8million before the loan ends.

Mr Oppong Boateng, who couldn't hide his joy in an interview with Sunyani-based Space FM said it was a great joy when his son called him to confirmed the move.
"Three days ago, he phoned me to expect a surprise but I didn't know about it. When he finally confirmed his move yesterday, it was a great joy for me. To have my two sons (Kevin Boateng & Jerome Boateng) at Bayern and Barcelona", he excitedly stated.
