OL’s flagship rookie last summer, Jérôme Boateng had a generally disappointing season given his standing as world champion.
Virtually incapable of holding a match in its entirety, Jérôme Boateng did not assume the role of defender of Olympique Lyonnais, which was to be his when he was recruited last summer from Bayern Munich. Asked by Le Progrès about Jérôme Boateng’s first season in Lyon, Rhone coach Peter Bosz defended his player and opened the door to a second chance season for the German international. “At Bayern too, he didn’t finish his matches. The intensity is higher than here, but he has hardly ever finished a game at Bayern. If he prepares well, he could have a second season.” judged Peter Bosz. But according to information from Sky Sports, the trend is rather for Jérôme Boateng to leave at the end of the season.
Boateng ready to leave, OL on the same wavelength
Indeed, the media reveals that Jérôme Boateng agrees in principle to leave Olympique Lyonnais during the summer transfer window provided of course that he has satisfactory offers. Several European clubs are said to be targeted by the profile of the former Bayern Munich defender, who are also considering a more exotic adventure. Jérôme Boateng, for example, would be tempted by the idea of discovering Major League Soccer in the United States if the opportunity presented itself. In addition, according to information from Foot Mercato, Olympique Lyonnais is also in favor of the departure of Jérôme Boateng despite the facade speech given by Peter Bosz. Suffice to say that the German international’s adventure with OL could end this summer, just one year after his arrival on the banks of the Rhône. Facing Clermont on Saturday evening during the last day of Ligue 1, Jérôme Boateng may have played his last match in France, a country in which he will not have made an impression.
