Bayern Munich defender Jerome Boateng will face charges of domestic violence, a German court ruled on Monday.
The 31-year-old former Germany international has been accused of attacking his ex-partner and mother of his two children during their 10-year relationship.
Court spokesman Klaus-Peter Juengst said the former international will stand trial on a charge of “slight, intentional bodily injuries.
It rejected, however, charges of “serious bodily injuries” against Boateng, one of the country’s most successful players, having won the World Cup with Germany in 2014 and the Champions League with Bayern in 2013.
