JEROME BOATENG says he didn’t eat for two days after losing the Champions League final to Chelsea.

The Bayern Munich defender lost Didier Drogba for the Blues’ 88th-minute equaliser.

The match eventually went to penalties which gave Chelsea a dramatic win at the Allianz Arena.

“I didn’t know how to process that defeat, and I didn’t eat for two days,” Boateng told FourFourTwo.

“Then, on the third day, Thomas Muller sent a message to the team that read: ‘I know it’s hard, but f**k it, we have to get over it now. Next year we’re going to win the title.”

Boateng says it was that message from Muller and the Chelsea defeat that inspired Bayern to win the treble the following season.

He added: “You could see how focused we were as a squad to do that.

“That whole season, no one was even a little bit late for anything because we were so motivated and focused on avenging that defeat – which is exactly what we did.”
