Bayern Munich defender, Jerome Boateng, says he was able to stay at the club because of the presence of current coach Hansi Flick despite being chased by some top European clubs.
Boateng struggled for game time at the beginning of last season and looked to exit the club until the managerial change mid-season.
In an interview with Bild, Boateng opted to stay at the club following his admiration for Flick.
“It was for him that I stayed in January. Flick showed me his confidence, I never wanted anything else. I’m happy to be able to give it back. Flick is a clear person, he doesn’t cheat on you. But in return, he asks for a lot. He doesn’t mince words and tells you what you need to work on. He changed this team.”
