The next 2 quotes from the

Jerome Boateng best quotes

show that when you reach success, you have to set new goals and not to rely on the success you achieve for a long time.

I wanted to set new goals, because if you say “Oh, I’m world champion” you don’t grow, and you don’t keep your level.

On Playing Football

In this part of the article, we are going over the

Jerome Boateng quotes on football

and his position.

The most important thing I learned during games is to be calmer, to try to smooth over other people’s or my own mistakes, and not to tackle people unnecessarily. Patience was key for me.

I have to open the game from my position. It's really important to play with the ball.

When you fall down or slip in a situation, and somebody scores a goal, it's normal. These things happen. It happens to me; it happens to other players; I don't care about these things.

Here we go through the Best Jerome Boateng quotes on football which are about the fans.

You meet somebody on a bus or something, and they say “Thank you for the World Cup; it was so good to see” and stuff like this, it’s funny.

I think it’s very important that you have a good relationship with the fans. You can’t lump everyone together as a fan, there are different types of fans, but I think it’s important to speak to them and get to know them.

Let’s continue with the other Jerome Boateng quotes.

You need bad times to become a better and strong player.

You mostly defend with your head, always reacting to the movement of opponents and teammates. I had to become more aware of that, play with much more consideration, the way you drive a car: you always need to look left, right, and the rear mirror to see what’s going on around you.

It’s absolutely fine to be a bit more reactive and not chase after the ball at times. But you cannot be passive.

Over the years, you get better at the timing because you’ve been through the situations thousands of times. The ball goes over your head; he passes you on the right, left. Eventually, you just know what you have to do.

As a player, you would sometimes want a bit more public backing.

I have improved both feet for my passing game as well as in the vertical play into the attack, whether that be low balls or long balls.

In the following Jerome Boateng quotes, he talks about his position.

Keeping up your concentration is one of the hardest tasks when you’re a center-back because a team like Bayern tend to dominate and can give you a sense of false security.

I can play as a full-back on either side, but I prefer the central defensive position.

I play where the coach puts me and try to help the team.

Now let’s go on with the

Jerome Boateng quotes

on the football of England.

I had only one year in England and had not such a good time. Two times, I was out eight weeks with injuries.

In Germany, young players are given more time, more patience. In England, they prefer to buy already high-level players rather than spending some time building up a really talented young guy.

Let’s keep on with the rest of the best Jerome Boateng quotes on football.

It’s always fun to play against the best players. That’s how you improve yourself.

As a player, you know whether you are 100 percent or not.

I try every day to become a better player, passing more to open the game, I try everything because you can always be better.

In football, you can never know what happens in the future.

On Footballers & Coaches

In this part, we will have a look at what Jerome Boateng has said about football players and coaches. Stay tuned!

Messi and Ronaldo are the toughest. But I would also place Eden Hazard of Chelsea, Neymar of Barcelona, and Karim Benzema of Real Madrid on the list.

We can only stop Cristiano Ronaldo as a team. In front of the goal, he’s like a machine. You can’t shut him out completely; he always gets his chances in a game because of the lines he runs and his excellent timing.

Messi is so quick; he’s so good. For me, he’s the best player in the world.

Messi simply cannot be stopped by yourself. Ronaldo is easier because he is more about athletic prowess.

Here is a quote of this German defender on Pep Guardiola, who was the manager of FC Bayern from 2013 to 2016.

Under Pep Guardiola, it’s hard work. For me, Guardiola is one of the best coaches I’ve ever met. He’s incredibly clever and tactically really good, and he knows how to speak to us, how to motivate us, and that’s what it is like.

On FC Bayern & Mannschaft

Now it is time to have a look at the Jerome Boateng best quotes on the Bavarians and the German national team.

On FC Bayern

At Bayern, if you don’t win the Champions League, it’s always a criticism because we have a great team, but most of people forget that there are other great teams, and it’s not that we aren’t special.

I experienced everything at FC Bayern.

I feel completely contented at Bayern, one of the biggest clubs in the world.

The next quote among the Jerome Boateng quotes shows his passion for the Reds of Munich.

I have much to be grateful for at Bayern, and I feel super comfortable. I can’t imagine being at another club.

Let’s continue with the rest of the quotes.

I’m very happy at Bayern.

Bayern is the biggest team in Germany, one of the biggest teams in Europe. Every year, world-class players come along, so it’s one of the strongest teams in the world.

On Mannschaft

I am happy to be a German. I’m proud or I wouldn’t be here with the team.

I will always look back with great pleasure on the time spent with the DFB team.

To get the title for your home country in another country like Brazil, the home of football, was amazing.

It really should not matter which color of skin a person has. I know where my roots are, and I know that I’ve been born and raised in Germany. I see myself as a German, and I like to show that.

It would be a huge honor for me to wear the armband for Germany as the first black captain ever.

As said before, this brilliant footballer is half Ghanaian. In this quote among the Jerome Boateng quotes, he talks about it.

I do feel my African side, but I’ve always wanted to play for Germany. Ghana did contact me, but I told them and my dad that I was sure I wanted to play for Germany.

Jerome Boateng has faced his brother, Kevin-Prince Boateng, 2 times in the World Cup, as one of them played for Germany and the other one played for Ghana. In the 2010 South Africa World Cup, Germany won with the result of 1-0 and in 2014, they ended the match with the result of 2-2. Now let’s take a look at one of the

Jerome Boateng quotes

which is about playing against his brother.
