AC Milan midfielder Kevin-Prince Boateng has hailed the passion for football in Italy. Boateng has also played in England and Germany.

"In Germany there is a passion for football," he told RTV. "But it is not as strong as it is here.

"Many people in this country work 10 hours a day just to pay for a ticket to the stadium.

"That, for me, is an amazing thing."
