Ex-Bayern Munich defender Boateng ordered to pay €1.8m fine after being found guilty of assault

Ex-Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng has been ordered to pay a €1.8m (£1.5m/$2.1m) fine after being found guilty of assault.

The 33-year-old, who signed for Ligue 1 giants Lyon on a free transfer earlier this month, reported to Munich District Court on Thursday for sentencing after being accused of deliberately injuring and insulting his former partner in 2018.

Boateng had denied assaulting the mother of his twin daughters, named as Sherin S, who testified that he had punched her, pulled her hair and bitten her during an argument while they were on holiday in the Caribbean.
