“I want to thank everyone at OL for welcoming me to the club. I felt an extremely warm welcome and a lot of confidence in who I am as a person and as a player. I can't wait to start this new chapter in my career. I want to give my best for this club. I am looking forward to meeting my teammates. This is a quality squad with young players, to which I can bring my experience. I am also looking forward to playing in this incredible stadium. The transfer window was long from my perspective. I had received other offers, but itt was important for me to have a good feeling about the club where I signed and to have a project to join. I had good conversations with Peter Bosz and I'm really happy to be here. I've known this club since I was small. There are great players here. It’s an honor for me to be a part of this club. I want to bring my experience to this team, and a winning mentality, especially for the team's young players. Talking doesn't help much; you have to work hard. I have done everything to stay in shape. I have to find the rhythm necessary to reach my best."

Jean-Michel Aulas

“We are very happy that Jérôme Boateng accepted our offer. He showed a responsiveness in the hopes that things could be done before the end of the transfer window. It was a race against time. We are very happy to welcome a world champion. He is a very high level player."


“Peter Bosz took the lead, speaking with Jérôme Boateng and presenting the project to him. I thank Jérôme for his trust in us. He will give us a lot in the locker room thanks to his talent, his character, his motivation, and his experience. He is a little behind in the physical sense of things but his desire to win will facilitate his return... The coach spoke a lot to us about the need for a defender. We all agreed. The season is going to be difficult with a lot of matches, and the opportunity was there."
