After Bayern's defeat at Borussia Dortmund: Mats Hummels is annoyed that he did not leave earlier – Bundesliga – Bundesliga


Bayern's back center remained ill in Dortmund

Mats Hummels ran the top match in Dortmund on Saturday night with a "harder cold". That told Bayern Munich after the game – and was annoyed not to stay in the cab for a break. Niko Kovac said he asked the national player if he was sure he could continue.

"I got sick today," Hummels said immediately after the final whistle of the Sky interview: "It all took a little longer than usual, twice obviously when we hit the ball last time. The man loses."

In the tenth minute, a Hummels missed the ball in the 0-0 construction with a great chance of Marco Reus. With Bayern 2: 1, the international German was Jadon Sancho's last man to watch the ball, which made him look pretty old in the next sprint and took a few meters. Lucky for FCB that Alcacer gave him a few meters (62).

"Usually, I think I think quickly that I have an overview of the situation, and that was not the case twice today today, twice completely, very badly," said Hummels self-critically: "After the situation (with Sancho, d.Red.) I said then ok, so it's too risky that I'm under such a thing again and then it's out.

"I'm angry I did not say at half-time at the latest, it does not make sense. When everything is so boring and unclear in the head, playing at such a high level is difficult to implement."Mats Hummels

Would he even play? "It's been fifty-five years," Hummels said. For him – who has been playing for BVB for eight years – it would of course be difficult to let this game go away because of a cold. The coaching team was informed, of course, and said halfway. "But I'm sorry I did not say at the latest at break, it does not make sense, if everything is a bit boring and unclear in the head, only a game at such a high level is difficult to implement."

Kovac: "I asked, are you sure you can play?"

Bayern coach Kovac reported to the press conference after the game, Hummels received a drug during the break and it was said that everything was ok: "I also asked him halfway through: Are you sure you can play?" Kovac said: "He said yes, so I sent him back to the yard." Niklas Süle, who had already paused at the break, sat down again on the bench.

Süle also belonged to the Bayern players, but was overwhelmed by the Dortmund offensive in the second half. Two minutes after entering the game for Hummels, Reus equalized to make 2-2 (67 ') and Bayern's winner was Alcacer in the 73rd minute. "That can not be the case, it was Kovac: "The BVB has very fast players that go deeper, we should have been more compact."
