The Ghana midfielder joined on a free transfer after FIFA approved his exit from Ukrainian club Dnipro.

Boateng started in the opening day win at Sunderland, but has not played since and he was not even amongst the substitutes for the weekend defeat at Chelsea.

"On the bench I have to make decisions, like can they play in different positions," Jol is quoted by the Fulham Chronicle.

"Derek wasn't even in the 18 for the last game.

"He didn't play for a year and it showed. He was good in the first hour [at Sunderland] and then he dropped a bit."

ood lord that's got me unnecessarily excited. Damn you Storey. Cut to Liverpool being crushed under the wheels of Sparky's Stoke Machine and Firmino brought off the bench to no effect. It's the hope that kills you.

think he'll do quite well. My only reservation would be Kagawa, who had similar stats to Firmino in the bundesliga before he came, but time will tell.
