Coach-player fight, team is out, ’13 years of service over’ Hummels “leaves a special club”

Mats Hummels (35) has ended his 13-year stint at Borussia Dortmund. It comes just one day after the departure of head coach Edin Dzerzhik (42).

“Dortmund is parting ways with Hummels after a total of 13 years of successful cooperation with him,” the club announced on its official website on Thursday, adding, “This is the result of conversations between Dortmund sporting director Lars Ricken, Sebastian Kell and Hummels this week.”

Hummels said goodbye through official channels. “I have spent more than 13 years at Dortmund. It’s time for it to come to an end,” he said, adding: “This club with its fans has been more than special. I would also like to thank the Dortmund staff for their support.”

Entering his twilight years, Hummels was still at the top of his game. He started the UEFA Champions League (UCL) final against Real Madrid earlier this month and put in a stellar defensive performance, notably making a sensational tackle to deny a breakaway by Vinicius Junior, 24, one of the best wingers in the world.

Hummels’ career has been eventful. Most notably, Hummels left Dortmund in July 2016 to join their biggest rivals, Bayern Munich, in a move that angered fans. After three years, Hummels returned to Dortmund. Since 2019, Hummels has been back in a Dortmund jersey and has been the team’s main center-back.

He is undoubtedly a club legend. In 508 appearances for Dortmund, Hummels scored 38 goals and provided 23 assists. At Munich, he scored eight goals and provided nine assists in 118 games. In all, he played 367 games in the German Bundesliga in a Dortmund shirt.

He’s one of the most decorated defenders in German Bundesliga history. Hummels won the German Super Cup three times with Dortmund and three times with Munich. He won the Bundesliga title with Dortmund in the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 seasons. After 카지노사이트 moving to Munich, he won three consecutive league trophies starting in the 2016-2017 season. He also won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil with the German national team.

“Mats has been one of Dortmund’s key players for the past 15 years,” says sporting director Ricken, “and he has won many trophies. A personal highlight was winning the 2014 World Cup. His play in central defense was special. It was not easy to make this decision. He will be part of Dortmund’s history.”
