Together they celebrated the biggest success of their career.
Miroslav Klose (44) and Jérôme Boateng (34/currently Olympique Lyon) became world champions with the German national team in Brazil in 2014. Now – almost nine years later – the former top striker and current coach of SCR Altach wants to lure the native of Berlin to the Austrian provinces. This is reported by the “Kronen Zeitung”.
Boateng is currently under contract with French club Olympique Lyon. His working paper expires in the summer. What happens to the two-time Champions League winner afterwards?
Recently there have been rumors that Boateng could return to Hamburger SV. But according to BILD information, the club is not interested.
A duck! Just like the Klose rumor?
Shortly after the article on the speculation was published, the communications department of SCR Altach reported via Twitter and charmingly denied the rumor: “Dear media, before you all jump up here again – in the summer there was a similarly well-researched story about Heiko Herrlich in the @krone_at!”
At that time, the paper reported that Herrlich (ex-Augsburg and Leverkusen coach, among others) was about to be hired at Altach. However, nothing came of it. At “Sky” Herrlich said at the time that he had not even had personal contact with the club.
So now speculation about the former Bayern star.
Boateng is doing modestly this season. Various injuries threw the central defender off course, most recently he was often not even in the squad, although he is healthy. His future is uncertain.
A reunion with world champion Buddy Klose would be an exciting idea.
