New Delhi: After Bayern Munich’s shocking 3-2 defeat to Rostov in the Champions League match, Bayern’s defender Boateng drew criticism for his performance from Bayern Munich’s president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Rummenigge, who closely followed the match where the 28-year-old defender came off injured in the defeat, said that Boateng should “come back to earth”.

When asked about this criticism, Jerome Boateng sanguinely replied with a laugh. “I can only laugh about these statements,” he said. 

“Next time he can say it personally in my face – and then it’s fine.”

Bayern Munich has had a slow start this season. They recently defeated Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 to sit behind leaders RB Leipzig.
