Jerome Boateng denies being given Bayern Munich ultimatum

Jerome Boateng dismisses Mehmet Scholl's claims that Bayern Munich threatened to sell him if he did not improve on his inconsistent displays from last season.

Ghanian defender Jerome Boateng has insisted that Bayern Munich did not threaten to offload him if he did not improve upon his form from last campaign.

Former Bayern midfielder Mehmet Scholl recently claimed that the 25-year-old was issued an ultimatum by the Champions League winners following an inconsistent 2012-2013 season.

Boateng has dismissed these suggestions and stressed that his future with the Bavarians was not on the agenda in discussions held between him and the Bundesliga giants.

"[Scholl's] statement is completely false and I'm amazed by it," Boateng told Sport-BILD weekly. Of course, I have had talks with the club. I am always talking to the club.

"But this does not mean I am considering leaving. Also, the club has not issued me with any ultimatum regarding my future."

Boateng joined Bayern in 2011 from Manchester City in a reported £11m deal, after spending just one season with the Premier League outfit.
