Remember Kevin Prince-Boateng?

The Ghanaian midfielder has always been something of an enigma - he was a flop at Tottenham, but has since carved out a pretty decent career with the likes of AC Milan, Schalke 04, and now Las Palmas.

It's with the last of those three sides that he's just scored an early contender for Goal of the Season, courtesy of some of the best passing you will see in a very long time.

It's not very often Los Amarillos pull something off quite this spectacular, but the former Spurs man has always had a deadly finish on him.

This is the same Kevin Prince-Boateng who could hardly get a game under Juande Ramos a few years back, so it's fair to say things have been looking up for him since he quit the Premier League.

Think that Jack Wilshere goal for Arsenal, as it's in that league of team build-up play, and all from one of La Liga's less glamorous sides.

Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to secure the three points, as Villarreal still came out on top with a 2-1 victory at El Madrigal.

Nicola Sansone and Cedric Bakambu got the all-important goals for the Yellow Submarine, the latter's coming in injury time.

What a hit

However, there's a reason that it's Boateng's strike that everyone's talking about. Incidentally, it was his third since joining this summer. 

Watch this:

And there you have it - this is why La Liga is not just all about Real Madrid and Barcelona. What about that for an assist, too.

Villarreal arguably needed the points more than ninth-placed Las Palmas, and that victory has put them joint-3rd with Barcelona.

Just three points separate Real Madrid at the top and their city rivals Atletico in fifth, so Boateng's brilliant goal was just one of a number of talking points after this weekend's action.
