The Ghana international has been utilised as an attacking midfielder primarily but earlier in his career was notable for his ability to play down the flanks in both defensive and offensive positions.
Coach Massimiliano Allegri, however, has still not made up his mind on the midfielder's attacking capabilities and has only given him a licence to attack freely on an intermittent basis.
Boateng told Sky Sport Italia that he's not particularly fond of the tactical experiments even as he understands the rationale behind them.
"I don't like changing role all of the time. I've played in attack, as a trequartista and in midfield this season. I don't like constantly switching positions," he said.
"The fact that I can play in a number of roles is said to be a positive, but it is not a perfect situation for me."
Regardless of his personal dissatisfaction, he's been rather pleased with the performances of Mario Balotelli and confessed that he would miss the striker in the coming games. The Italian has been handed a three-match ban for having verbally assaulted an assistant referee and will miss the upcoming fixtures against Juventus, Napoli and Catania.
"We'll miss him in these next few games," Boateng continued.
"He's a really important player for us. And he is very similar to Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
"He's a really good kid and he's been a professional since he's been here.
