Boateng: What I Told Mourinho On The Phone


Pogba has publicly fallen out with United manager Jose Mourinho and has continued to fuel speculation concerning an exit by claiming: 'I'm playing there at the moment, but who knows what will happen in the next few months'.

One position that he desperately tried to strengthen was the centre-back position.

"I had enquiries from PSG and Manchester United", he told Bild. I feel well at Bayern.

"As a fan, honestly, part of me is that no one is bigger than the club and I am not interested in people who are looking left and right".

The Global Disaster Alert and Coordination System said the more than 27.3 million people will be exposed to the power of Mangkhut. Typhoon Haiyan left more than 7,300 people dead or missing and displaced over 5 million in the central Philippines in 2013.

Attempts to sign Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld and Leicester City's Harry Maguire failed and Boateng was one of a number of other centre-backs to be strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.

The German defender was the topic of transfer rumours throughout the summer window, but opted to remain with Bayern for his eighth season with the club.

The 30-year-old says that he was tempted by the idea of a new challenge, but could not bring himself to leave a club of Bayern's stature.

Boateng struggled to hold down his place at Bayern last season due to a combination of injuries and rotation, prompting him to reconsider his future with the Bavarian side.

"I called Jose Mourinho, I told him that his interest was an honor for me and thanked him for trying so hard for me. Everything has to fall in place to top this club, if I do it".

However, Boateng showed his class during the phone-call and Mourinho will no doubt have appreciated his honest words.

He also said he would be fined if he revealed what he really thought of Mourinho.

He looked in good spirits as he arrived back at the hotel following his first full training session since the break as he hopes to inspire his team to a win at Watford on Saturday afternoon.
