Last week it was officially confirmed that Bayern Munich would not extend their contract with Jerome Boateng. The “Sport1.de” portal reported that the player found out about the club’s decision at a somewhat strange moment.
Boateng for 10 years with the success of the “Die Roten” color weapon. But in the summer the player’s adventure with the club ends. Bayern authorities decided not to renew the contract, which expires in June 2021.
The 32-year-old learned of the activists’ decision at a very unfortunate moment. Florian Plettenberg reports from “Sport1.de” for details.
Bayern’s sporting director Hassan Salih Hamidic decided to have this important conversation on the day of the match against Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League quarter-finals. It happened after the morning warm-up period, and a few hours before the start whistle.
One can only imagine how talk about the end of many years of cooperation affected the defender’s stance. The player seemed to deserve more respect from the activists.
– On the day of the match against Paris Saint-Germain, Salih Hamidic would have told Boateng, right after the morning training session, that the club would not renew his contract. 10 years in the club, 17 titles, world champion, two triple crowns. Good thing he didn’t tell him on the toilet while he was washing his hands – Thomas Urban of “Eleven Sports” commented.
Boateng began his fight with Paris Saint-Germain off the bench. In the 42nd minute he appeared on the field after replacing Niklas Soil. Bayern eventually lost 2: 3 and in the rematch in Paris they have to look for opportunities to recoup the losses.
The veteran defender this season has played for Die Rutten in 32 games. He scored two goals in it and scored one pass. He spent a total of 2520 minutes on the field.
