There he is still under contract until June 30, 2022. He was born on September 3rd, 1988 in Berlin and grew up with a sister and two half-brothers. One of his half brothers is the also very famous Kevin Prince Boateng, who is currently lacing his boots for the glorious FC Barcelona. Jérôme Boateng grew up in Berlin-Charlottenburg with a German mother and a Ghanaian father, who separated when Jérôme was only five years old. In Berlin, he finished his school career after finishing tenth grade with a secondary school leaving certificate in order to fully devote himself to his potential career as a professional footballer.

A career that got steeper and steeper …
Jérôme Boateng made his first attempt on the sacred lawn for the Tennis Borussia Berlin club. However, several scouts soon became aware of the talented defense chickens, which is why a move to a larger club was only a matter of time. At the age of 13, he switched to the youth department of Hertha BSC and went through all youth departments at the capital club. Although it was still in the U19 in terms of age, the center-back was moved to the U23 in its second year, which then, like in the Regionalliga Nord, plays then. Jérôme made his debut for the professional team in the 2006/2007 season, in which he was used ten times. In the 2007/2008 season, the young central defender announced a change of scenery – because from Berlin he went north to Hamburger SV, where he was supposed to play 75 games from 2007 to 2010. The former Bundesliga club was another springboard for Jérôme Boateng on his steep football career.

Highlights of his football life

In Wembley they beat league rivals Borussia Dortmund 2-1 and were allowed to stretch the coveted trophy into the London night sky.
