Joe Boateng’s days behind the counter of a cheap burger bar are far behind him, as is his childhood sweetheart Naomi and the kids who mocked him for his Ghanaian accent. Now a premiership football star, he’s never out of the papers and everyone wants a piece of him. The Cristal, the bad behaviour, now the rape allegations… what happened to the good boy who stayed out of trouble?
