The German defender confirmed reports that he drew interest over the summer while offering insight into why he turned down a pair of potential moves.

Jerome Boateng has confirmed reports that both Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain were interested in him this summer while revealing that Jose Mourinho was unable to convince him to leave Bayern Munich.

The German defender was the topic of transfer rumours throughout the summer window, but opted to remain with Bayern for his eighth season with the club.

Boateng had previously played in the Premier League for Manchester City, but the 30-year-old defender could not be tempted to leave Bayern, even if the thought of a new club intrigued him.

“I did not want just to get away from Bayern, but I was thrilled to try a new challenge.

“I feel well at Bayern. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world.”

Boateng went onto reveal that he personally spoke to Mourinho regarding Manchester United’s interest.

Mourinho was adamant on bringing another centre-back to Old Trafford, with Harry Maguire also viewed as a target.

However, Maguire said he never had concrete thoughts of leaving Leicester City and Boateng also revealed he wasn’t fully convinced of a move.

“I called Jose Mourinho, I told him that his interest was an honor for me and thanked him for trying so hard for me,” Boateng said.

“I explained to Jose that it’s difficult to leave Bayern, and if I do, everything has to be in place to top this club.”

Are the World Cup finalists suffering from a hangover after their loss to France in Russia? Their Nations League opener certainly suggested so!

Losing a World Cup final can’t be easy, but just how damaging it could be to a side was on full display in Croatia’s crushing defeat at the hands of Spain.

Croatia followed their World Cup heartbreak with a lacklustre 1-1 friendly draw against Portugal last week, but in their first competitive match since the 4-2 defeat at the hands of France, Zlatko Dalic’s side set an unwanted record with the 6-0 loss at the hands of Spain in the UEFA Nations League – the biggest defeat in the country’s history by a distance.

The previous worst loss for the nation came in 2009 in a World Cup qualifying match against England when the side suffered a 5-1 loss at Wembley.

That match marks the only other time in history that Croatia have fallen by more than three goals, with the side having suffered five losses by three goals in their history.

Real Madrid star Marco Asensio was the man of the moment for Spain, scoring once and setting up four more in Luis Enrique’s second match in charge, and Croatia had no answer for the Spanish star on the night.

The match also kept Spain’s perfect record when playing against Croatia star Luka Modric.

The Real Madrid star has now lost all three matches he’s played against Spain in his career.

Spain return to the pitch in a month to face Wales in a friendly before return to Nations League action against England.

Croatia will also be back in action in October, but face another tough test against the Three Lions on their return to the pitch.

Weah won Liberia’s presidential election in December, after securing 12 of the 15 counties in the west African nation, thus, succeeding Ellen Johnson Sirleaf.

The 1995 Fifa Ballon d’Or winner and three-time African Player of the Year defeated 73-year-old Joseph Boakai to become the country’s 24th president.
