A quick, creative, agile, and technically gifted central midfield playmaker, with notable dribbling skills, quick reactions, and close ball control, Emmanuel Boateng is known for his confidence on the ball and ability to retain possession in tight spaces when under pressure. His excellent vision and range of passing enable him to create chances for teammates with accurate long passes, or control the tempo of his team's play in midfield through precise, short exchanges.
Although naturally right-footed, he is capable of playing with either foot. In addition to his playmaking skills, he is also a hard-working, dynamic, and well-rounded midfielder, who is known for his aggression, defensive skills, and ball-winning abilities, which also enables him to be deployed in a holding role.
