Jerome Boateng frustrated not to be starting for Bayern Munich

Jerome Boateng is determined to fight his way back onto the pitch, despite not starting Bayern Munich’s last three matches in the new year.

Niko Kovac has preferred the centre-back duo of Mats Hummels and Nikalas Sule.

Following the Leverkusen match, Boateng spoke with German television outlet Nitro (via SportBild).

“I wasn’t in the starting lineup — that’s not up to my standards. Football is not always fair, but you have to fight your way out,” said Boateng.

“I’ve come out of very different situations stronger.”
