Mats Hummels causes a penalty in Eindhoven and is angry

Mats Hummels’ need to communicate was great after Borussia Dortmund’s 1-1 draw in Eindhoven, in which an action by the defender once again became the focus of the debriefings. The bus was still down in front of the stadium when Hummels, who had already complained and railed in front of the TV cameras, took another breath on the news platform of the evening, now not in a running duel with an opposing striker, but against the referees of the world.

“I can’t believe that there can be decisions like today, against Chelsea or against PSG with the VAR,” he wrote after this round of 16 first leg in the Champions League with the sovereign leaders of the Dutch Eredivisie. His message: Not only is BVB constantly being treated unfairly, but the referees don’t understand its greatest strength: the tackle.
