Jérôme Boateng will miss the final of the World Cup for clubs in Qatar against the Mexican Tigres on Thursday. The Bayern Munich defender returns to Germany due to the sudden death of his ex-girlfriend.
Kasia Lenhardt was found dead on Tuesday. The police in Berlin assume suicide.
Last week, the relationship between 32-year-old Boateng and 25-year-old Lenhardt came to an end. The woman was known in Germany for her participation in Germany’s Next Topmodel and her work as a model. She was the mother of a son.
“We are all very shocked by the news,” Bayern coach Hansi Flick said at a press conference on Wednesday. “Jérôme came to me to ask if he could go home. As soon as he has a negative test result, he will fly to Germany.”

Bayern can win the World Cup for clubs for the second time
76-time German international Boateng was in the base of Bayern on Monday in the semi-finals of the World Cup for clubs, in which the Germans were 2-0 too strong for the Egyptian Al Ahly due to two goals from Robert Lewandowski.
The final between the winner of the Champions League and Tigres starts on Thursday at 7 p.m. (Dutch time) in the Education City Stadium in Ar Rayyan.
Bayern can win the World Cup for clubs for the second time, after beating Raja Casablanca 2-0 in 2013 in Marrakesh, Morocco. Boateng had a basic place at the time.
