Why Prince-Boateng could scupper Arsenal's European dreams... providing his sex life allows

Kevin Prince-Boateng is the most unlikely AC Milan dangerman.

But Arsenal had better hope that the ex-Spurs midfielder does not recover in time from injury for the second leg let alone next week.

Former Portsmouth midfielder Boateng has been fantastic for AC Milan this season, dominating in midfield and also scoring a terrific goal against Barcelona in the Champions League in November.

Boateng has also provided off the pitch entertainment. He's managed just 15 starts partly due to the fact that his girlfriend, model Melissa Satta, says their sex life has caused him to suffer injuries.

He should be back in full training within the next week. Sex life willing, of course.

But a little mole within the game tells me that Boateng has been THE story of AC Milan this season. Partly because he was so inconsistent in the Premier League. And partly because he's been terrific. And partly because he's a character.

Boateng, hoping to face Arsenal in the second leg, said: "I am desperate to return to the pitch but I don't want to set a date and then be disappointed.

"Having played at Tottenham, I know the rivalry. If we win then I know I will receive a lot of congratulations from my friends in London. But these knock-out games are never easy, although Milan will always be my favourite."
