It could be said that football runs in the veins of Jérôme's family. He was born in Berlin on September 3rd to a Ghanian father and a German mother. Jerome and his brothers, who are footballers as well, were born into football. His uncle played in the Ghanian national team.
His volatile thus incalculable style of play makes him a tough defender.
His resumé includes Hertha BSC and currently Hamburger SV at the national level. He also played in German U-19 and U-21 German national football teams. He was recruited this year into the German national team.
