Ghanaian manager George Boateng continues to carve his managerial niche as he guided Aston Villa’s U23 side to an emphatic 4-0 triumph over Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League 2 on Friday.
The Ghanaian-born former Dutch international was in the dugout at the Bodymoor Heath Training Ground as his boys disappeared from sight against a Wolves side that looked lost due to the high intensity of the Villa team.
The game was just over a minute old when Villa fashioned their first chance of the afternoon, with Hayden blazing a great chance over the bar following a neat combination between Barry and Ramsey down the right.
Kaine Hayden got the ball rolling with an early goal before Louie Barry doubled the lead with a penalty in first half stoppage time.
After the break, Villa captain Hayden got his second when he finished off a flowing team move before Aaron Ramsey put the finishing touches on a thumping victory.
Boateng, a former Premier League star who made his name starring for Villa, Middlesbrough and Hull City, is regarded as one of finest technical brains in the English Premier League 2.
