Olympique Lyonnais wants to get rid of Jérôme Boateng


Arrived last summer to strengthen the defense of OL, Jérôme Boateng has never really lived up to expectations. The Rhone club is ready to part with it this summer.

To make up for its defensive shortcomings, Olympique Lyonnais struck hard last summer by bringing back Jérome Boateng until 2023. However, nothing went as planned for the German international. Barred by injuries, he was never really able to impose his leadership within the Rhone defense and it was the young Castello Lukeba (19), installed during the season to compensate for the injury of Jason Denayer, who has paradoxically been the most reassuring during the season.

Jérôme Boateng had however raised a lot of expectations among supporters and within the club itself, but the series of poor performances (in Monaco, during the 3-2 defeat, against Angers, during the 3-2 victory and against West Ham, in the Europa League) had forced Peter Bosz to leave him on the bench. After a few altercations in the locker room, the Lyon manager even ended up dismissing the player for a few weeks. While there is still one year of contract for the former Munich player at OL, his situation would push the club to part with him after only 27 matches played since his arrival.

Jérome Boateng has leads in Europe… and in MLS

Asked by ProgressPeter Bosz had also warned his defender. “We took Jérôme Boateng, we had Jason Denayer, two experienced players in the middle. It was to find regularity. At Bayern either, he did not finish his matches. The intensity is higher than here, but he has hardly ever finished a game at Bayern. If he does a good preparation, he could do a second season.warned the Gones coach.

And according to information from Sky Sports, Jérôme Boateng would be ready to leave Lyon this summer. Several European clubs would be interested in enlisting him and the ex-defender of Bayern Munich does not rule out the idea of ​​spinning in MLS, in the United States. “It’s a dream that hasn’t gone away. It would be a great adventure to end there., explained the German. According to our information, Olympique Lyonnais has also opened the door to let him go this summer. Jérôme Boateng’s adventure at OL could therefore end earlier than expected and the bet taken by the Lyon management would then be definitively missed.
