Compared to some other players, Jerome Boateng is a quiet, considered and thoughtful speaker. You have the impression that nothing can ruffle the defender's poise, away from the field of play at least. That's exactly why Boateng feels so at home in Munich, as he explained to fcbayern.de: “The Bavarian mentality is perfect for me. Munich is very comfortable and you settle in quickly."
Jerome, who spent a couple of days on holiday in Miami this Christmas with his half-brother Kevin-Prince Boateng of AC Milan, left Manchester City and signed for Bayern last summer. Some six months and half a season later, Jerome is convinced of one thing: “Joining Bayern was exactly the right step for me."
