German and Bayern Munich star Jerome Boateng has opened up on his love for Ghana despite pledging his allegiance to play for the German national team.

The 31-year old visited the West Africa country in 2018 and revealed to his fans it was one of his best experiences.

Born to a Ghanaian father and a German mother in the city of Berlin, the centre-back represents the country of his birth at international level whilst his brother Kevin-Prince Boateng represented Ghana.

In 2010, he and his brother faced each other when Ghana and Germany met at the FIFA World Cup hosted in South Africa.

Boateng took to Twitter where he engaged fans in a conversation with the hashtag #AskJerome.

He was asked by one of the followers if he had any family members in Ghana and how he related with them.

Boateng in his response said, “ I've been there in Dec 2018 - Best experience! I feel like home there, the people are incredibly friendly and I will definitely come again. Also got family over there yes.”

The former Manchester City defender is currently home due to the coronavirus outbreak which has led to the Bundesliga suspended.
