Bayern Munich and Germany defender Jerome Boateng has announced that his time with “Die Mannschaft” has come to an end. In an emotional message shared via his Instagram account, the thirty-year-old defender revealed, coach Joachim Low had a meeting with him and informed him that his services would no longer be required.
The message reads: “Coach Joachim Loew told me today in a straightforward discussion that I will not continue to be part of the DFB team, he wants to offer young players the stage in the future and especially concerning the upcoming tournaments want to give the team a new face. I am sad about this news because it has always been the greatest thing for me to represent my country. Nevertheless, I respect the new course and understand the decision of the national coach. I was young myself and reliant on older players to make room for me. Personally, I am convinced that I can continue to play at the highest level and will continue to do so in the future. I will always look back with great pleasure on the time spent in the DFB team. I have always been extremely proud to wear the jersey of the national team, and I will never forget summer 2014 in particular. Of course, I would have wished for another farewell for us. Good luck of the team for the future! ”
