Watch: Jerome Boateng produces incredibly cool back-heel clearance
Jerome Boateng marked his final Champions League appearance for Bayern Munich by producing the coolest defensive clearance we’ve ever seen.
Boateng will leave Bayern on a free transfer at the end of this season after 10 years at the club and has recently been linked with a move to Tottenham.
After coming off the bench in their 3-2 defeat to PSG in the Champions League quarter-final first leg, the centre-back was named in the starting Xl for the second leg.
PSG spurned numerous chances in the first half before Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting netted against his former club to level the scores on aggregate at 3-3.
Mauricio Pochettino’s side looked set to equalise in the 52nd minute but Neymar was unable to get a touch on Angel Di Maria’s cross.
Boateng then showed incredible composure to nonchalantly kick the ball out of play with a superb yet needless back-heel flick.
Bayern were unable to get a second goal at the Parc des Princes and PSG went through to the semi-finals on away goals.
