Ghana's John Boye, the revenge of the "butler"

Posted On Thursday, 29th November 2012

John Boye has been phenomenal for Stade Rennes

Stade Rennes manager Frédéric Antonetti is thrilled  with the rapid progress of Ghana defender John Boye describing him as the ‘revenge of the butler’. 

Indeed, the value of a John Boye compared to Thiago Silva is not comparable. Today, the European football market, the Ghanaian worth € 1.7 million against € 40 million defender Paris. Requirements can not be the same as Frédéric Antonetti.

‘John Boye when he arrived, he was a National player who was recruited to supplement the workforce.Through hard work, he became holder L1. Because there was a lot of investment on his part.”

“I do not ask questions! ’

The opinion of the technician Rennes is hard to argue when one remembers that John Boye came in bags of a certain John Mensah in 2008.

Some recitals even at the time he was hired because he was “his butler.” It is still quickly forget that John Boye was already Ghanaian international in June 2008.

Paradox, the student surpasses the teacher today, both in Rennes where he is needed from match to match, in national selection.

Still, his career is somewhat unusual as his style of play much maligned. ” I do not look too what was said about me, sighs player.

Critics touch me, of course. But that’s football, that’s life. I’m here to play and do my best every time. I do not ask questions,”

Not even when the coach criticizes its shortcomings. ”For me, this is not a criticism. I’ll take that as encouragement. “And even less when he recalls some blunders, its revival as guilty in line Saturday in Paris.

With aplomb, John Boye replies  : “It is the fault of Pastore who moved at the pass ! ’

Physical qualities

In short, his carefree nature that can sometimes lead us to believe in some form of pretension, is undoubtedly one of its strengths. And of course, the physical qualities above average.

“ I love defense in duels , he says. At Paris in the second half, it was great .”

But the central defender also like to fight ”the race balloons in depth. ”Even if the style is not always academic, it is often highly effective. ”John Boye is probably the best of the workforce on the defensive , “often repeated Frédéric Antonetti.

At age 25, the Ghanaian international continues its path and dream of one day evolve “ in the Champions League and World Cup play.

“In the meantime, he puts the blue heating daily to the drive and spends much of his free time to music and dance.

And particularly Azonto, a dance born in Ghana which literally translates the word mime work and daily activities such as washing, boxing or driving.

And even pass inside the right foot! Morality, even in his spare time, John Boye works. What hope one day he equalled his favourite player – Thiago Silva.
