Jean-Paul Boëtius (28) disappoints Mainz and can be picked up for free: ‘We wanted him to stay’ | Foreign football

Jean-Paul Boëtius leaves FSV Mainz 05 after four years. The former Feyenoord player has decided not to extend his contract and will leave for free next summer.

“We wanted him to stay. He was a very important player who always gave everything for the club. But he is also a grown man who has made a decision that is best for him,” said coach Bo Svensson after the last Bundesliga game of the season was drawn 2-2 against Eintracht Frankfurt yesterday.

The contract of 28-year-old Boëtius expired next summer and the Dutchman has not come to an agreement with the German club regarding a new contract. The one-time international of Orange can therefore be picked up for free.


Boëtius has played for FSV Mainz 05 in the Bundesliga for the past four years. That club took him over in the summer of 2018 for 3.5 million euros from Feyenoord, which had brought him back to de Kuip a year earlier. In 2015, Boëtius had already left for FC Basel for 2 million euros. With a rental period at RC Genk in between, the Dutchman decided three years later for a short return to Feyenoord before he left for the Bundesliga.

Boëtius was a fixed value at FSV Mainz 05 for four years. He played almost everything consecutively with 30 games (4 goals), 28 games (4 goals), 31 games (2 goals) and 33 games (2 goals). With Boëtius in the ranks, the German club finished twelfth, thirteenth, again twelfth and this season eighth.

Boëtius is not the only Dutchman to leave FSV Mainz 05. Jeremiah St. Juste recently earned a top transfer to Sporting Portugal. Delano Burgzorg also plays for the German club. He is currently rented from Heracles Almelo, but FSV Mainz 05 has a mandatory option to buy.
