Bundesliga Praised his rivals
He may have been at Borussia Dortmund for years, but Mats Hummels was spared no fury when he spoke about the recent success of RB Leipzig and praised the up-and-coming outfit.
Ranked as one of Dortmund‘s biggest rivals, for reasons both on and off the field, Hummels praised them despite the tension.
“I love this championship and I think it’s great that the Bundesliga has, at this point, five teams at a good level in European competition,” Hummels told Bild.
“Many Dortmund fans won’t like what I’m going to say, but I’m a fan of what RB Leipzig are doing in sporting terms and the way in which they’ve evolved the club.
“They’ve done great work, because money alone doesn’t guarantee anything.”
Hummels did also praise his current club though, discussing how a title with Dortmund could compare to those which he won with Bayern Munich.
“At Dortmund, titles matter more than anywhere,” he insisted.
The central defender is hoping that the team can regain form after the dismissal of coach Lucien Favre.
