AC Milan got a major offensive boost as Ghanaian forward Kevin-Prince Boateng has been cleared to play against Arsenal’s in the UEFA Champions League round 16 on Wednesday.

Boateng, who will turn 25 in March, has been out of action since suffering a left thigh strain during Milan’s 1-0 defeat by arch-rivals Inter Milan last month.

He resumed full training on Monday with Brazilian striker Alexandre Pato, defender Alessandro Nesta and keeper Christian Abbiati to give the Rossoneri many options against the Gunners.

The former Ghana forward has been a key figure in Coach Massimiliano Allegri’s team scoring four goals in 12 games and providing three assists.

The team has been hit by series of injuries and suspensions but Allegri hopes on his returning stars to get past this crucial period of the season.
