Ghanaian born Italian winger Kingsley Boateng has revealed the reason for leaving serie B side Bari for Slovenian top flight club Olimpija Ljubljana. 

According to the 24 year old, he was never happy at the club and joined the Slovenian club to get a chance of playing in the UEFA Champions League.

Kingsley Boateng who joined Olimpija Ljubljana at the beginning of last season, has played 8 times and scored twice for the Slovenian league leaders.

''At Bari I was no longer comfortable with the society and I played little. Then I received the call from Olimpija Lubiana and I was attracted to it, because it is a league where there are teams fighting to enter the Champions League, which we will have next year too, as we will play the preliminaries ".

Boateng was an academy product of AC Milan before joining Catania. Following an unsuccessful stint with Catania he joined Nac Breda in Holland before returning to Italy to sign for Bari.

The 24 year old has played for Italy's youth team but he is eligible to play for the senior team of Ghana, having been born in Mampong in the Ashanti Region.
