Derek Boateng is excited about his move to Fulham.
The Ghana midfielder admits he endured a difficult time at Dnipro in Ukraine.
He told the Fulham Chronicle: â€œI wasnâ€™t happy there. I was living alone without my family, which was very tough for me. I explained it to Dnipro several times, but they didnâ€™t understand.
â€œI really love my family and want them beside me all of the time. They give me more energy and power to keep going. I cannot survive without them. I only got to see my kids when they had vacation in school. I would see them for two weeks and then they would go. It was really tough.
â€œFulham were interested a few years ago. There was a misunderstanding with Dnipro. Fulham really wanted me to come but they said no. I wanted to go. I always had Fulham in my head â€“ that was the club I wanted to play for.
â€œItâ€™s a big relief for me to finally be here. This is the third time theyâ€™ve come in for me, so I thank God itâ€™s happened."
