The 21-year old defender has joined Hibs on loan from Arsenal for the remainder of the season and was surprised at the physicality of his first training session with the Edinburgh club.
Despite it being a swift baptism of fire, Boateng knows he has to get used to that part of football if he wants to make the grade in Scotland.
"The Hibs squad is very good. However, the game is so physical in Scotland. I have taken part in one training session and I did not expect it to be that physical.
"It is nothing that I can't handle but I will get used to it. I will learn to handle the physical approach and make it suit my game as I am up for the challenge."
