Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels has rather openly talked about his future while signing autographs for his fans. In the video below the 27-year-old said a few things that might make BVB fans hopeful that he might stay on after all.
While signing autographs in his car after what was probably Wednesday’s training session, Mats Hummels was talking about the fan’s reaction in BVB’s 5-1 home win over VfL Wolfsburg, where he received boos and whistles with every touch on the ball by the home supporters resulting of the ad-hoc announcement that Borussia Dortmund released early in the week. According to him, the ad-hoc announcement created a false impression.
“Everything is possible. Nothing is decided yet. This shitty [ad-hoc] announcement has created a false impression. I don’t know why that had to be done.”
Mats Hummels had already alluded to it that his decision to leave the club might not solely depend on FC Bayern’s offer as the club’s official release would suggest.
In the post-match interview of BVB’s home match against Wolfsburg he was quoted: “I mean, the club has to publish an ad-hoc announcement if there a ‘relative likeliness’ for a transfer. 51 percent suffice for that. We’ll have to see what happens in the coming days.”
While Sven Bender reiterated similar things. Is there hope after all?
There is probably more to come within the next days, as the club will most likely formulate some kind of response to Hummels calling the ad-hoc announcement a “Drecksmitteilung”.
