The centre-back, who joined Lyon this summer after leaving Bayern Munich, was ordered to pay a €1.8 million fine after being convicted on Thursday.
Boateng avoided a possible prison term for the incident which took place in 2018, but the prosecution has said they will consider appealing the judge’s ruling as they hoped for a suspended sentence instead of a mere fine.
What has been said?
Kevin-Prince says his relationship with Jerome, who has the same father but a different mother broke down well before the latter’s conviction.
Will Boateng play for Lyon?
The Germany international signed for Lyon in a free transfer during the summer window and is yet to make his first appearance for the club.
Coach Peter Bosz refused to comment on the 33-year-old’s legal situation but says there is a chance he could debut on Sunday when they take on Strasbourg.
