During his conversation on Rio Ferdinand's Vibe with FIVE podcast, Kevin-Prince Boateng shared a curious revelation.
The ex-Ghana international revealed that he had to lie about his preferences to wear a Barcelona shirt.
"I remember when I arrived in Barca, they asked me straight away who the best player in the world was. I had to say it was Lionel Messi, but I was lying.
"It was one of the biggest lies of my life. I usually always say the truth but this one I had to lie about because I wanted to put on that shirt for one time.
"I always supported Real Madrid when I was a teenager. I love Cristiano Ronaldo. But they told me I had to say that, otherwise I wouldn't play."
Well, in Boateng's own words, he wanted 'to put that shirt for one time,' and ironically, his dream came true.
He wore the Blaugrana jersey just four times during his six-month stint at Barca, with only one of those in front of the Camp Nou crowd.
