Jerome Boateng reveals his possible new position

Prior to the Liverpool game, Kicker have spoken to Bayern defender Jerome Boateng.

Bayern have one specific selection issue to contend with.

Joshua Kimmich is out fo the Liverpool match through suspension.

Rafinha could be deployed at right-back against the Reds, however Jerome Boateng has revealed he could play in the full-back slot. He said:

I would not have a problem with that.

If I can help the team in this position, I’m ready.

If Boateng does play at right-back, he’s likely to have the job of trying to contain Mo Salah.

Bayern’s other absentees vs Liverpool

Including Kimmich, Nico Kovac is missing four stars for the Liverpool match.

Arjen Robben is still not fit with a hamstring problems, while Corentin Tolisso is still recovering from his cruciate ligament rupture.
