Boateng receives Guinness World Record award

Not to be outdone by team-mate Robert Lewandowski, FC Bayern München and Germany international Jerome Boateng has been recognised by Guinness World Records.

Following in Lewandowski's footsteps

The 27-year-old was presented with an official Guiness World Record certificate having gone 56 Bundesliga games unbeaten playing for the German record titleholders between 3 November 2012 and 19 December 2014.

In the current campaign, Boateng, who is regarded as one of the most foremost centre-backs in football, has featured in 15 of FC Bayern’s 16 domestic outings, providing three assists and winning an astonishing 68.9 per cent of his challenges.
