Detail: Derek Boateng is a rangy midfielder who left Ghana for Greece at the age of just 16, playing first for Kalamata before being signed by Greek giants Panathinaikos. Despite stand-out performances in a handful of UEFA Champions League matches for Panathinaikos, Boateng never really established himself in the team and was sold to AIK in the summer of 2003.

Having starred at the 2001 FIFA World Youth Championship, Boateng was regarded as one of the most promising players around, but his career has not really taken off. He played in only one of Ghana’s qualification matches for the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ and was not selected in his country’s squad for the 2006 African Cup of Nations.
