An unsuccessful experience in D.C. United marked Emmanuel Boateng's soccer career lately. For that reason, when he appeared as a possible Columbus Crew Soccer Club reinforcing name, he showed his inmediately intentions of moving. In the Black and Red he only played for 51 minutes over three games. And now the story seems to start changing.

After 100 appareances in Los Angeles Galaxy, the 26-year-old Ghanaian was ready for a fresh start and after a phone call with Black & Gold coach Caleb Porter, he was convinced he was making the right choice. The trade finally happened a month ago and Boateng already played twice the time he did at D.C. United and also found a home around the city.

“I was working hard and trying to help the team in D.C., but when I heard the trade was happening I was very excited to join a team where I can improve every day and help the team when I’m needed,” the winger said. Gyasi Zardes who was his teammate in Los Angeles was key to his adaptation. "He’s been very good in helping me out on training and also in settling in the city and telling me where to go and everything," the Ghanian affirmed
