VICE SPORTS | Jerome Boateng on Beefing with his Brother and Becoming a Political Flash Point
Vice Sports sat down with Jérôme Boateng and got him to open up about some of the more formative moments of his career. As a kid, he grew up in a different area than his brothers and learned a rougher style of play with older players. Watching how good his brothers were on the left foot, and realizing how bad he was on his, literally made him cry in a corner. Then he made it a point to get better, and it helped him develop into a professional and German national team member.
