German footballer Jerome Boateng has appeared in court in Munich over allegations he assaulted his ex-girlfriend in 2018.

The defender is accused of injuring the mother of his twin daughters, named as Sherin S, during a dispute on holiday.

Prosecutors have accused the former Bayern Munich defender and 2014 World Cup winner of wilful bodily harm.

Mr. Boateng, 33, has denied the allegations. If convicted, he could be fined or jailed for up to five years.

Wearing a dark blue suit, Mr. Boateng was escorted by bodyguards as arrived in court with his lawyer Kai Walden on Thursday morning.

Ahead of the trial prosecutors accused Mr. Boateng of throwing a lamp and a small cooling box at his former partner during the alleged assault in the Caribbean in July 2018.

Mr. Boateng allegedly insulted her, hit her and pulled her hair, prosecution spokeswoman Anne Leiding told reporters.

In court, Mr. Boateng said he did not assault his ex-girlfriend and described a different version of events.

He said he and his ex-girlfriend had an argument after tensions escalated during a game of cards.

The court will hear testimony from four witnesses, German TV channel RTL reported. A verdict could be delivered on Thursday, the only scheduled day of proceedings.
