Boateng assaulted, goals for Gyan and Adomah
[WORLD CUP 2014 COUNTDOWN: Ghana] Ghanaian Kevin-Prince Boateng was attacked by an
unidentified man on the street of Kaarst in Germany and later treated at a hospital on Christmas Day. The holidays were kinder for Asamoah Gyan, who scored his
league-leading 15th goal in 12 games in the United Arab Emirates, and winger Albert Adomah, who scored his ninth goal of the season for English League
Championship team Middlesbrough.
A police statement said that the assault was related to the "personal affairs" of the 26-year-old Boateng, who was reported to be mildly injured. Boateng
joined German club Schalke 04 from AC Milan in the summer.
Meanwhile, veteran Michael Essien could be leaving Chelsea over the January transfer
window. He has rarely played for the Blues so far this season, having only started two league games since moving on loan from Real Madrid. Since he has not played in the Champions League this season,
Essien's agent hopes to move him to another club still involved in the Champions League.
