Bayern Munich defender had shared that he is very much happy with the squad rotation policy of his coach Niko Kovac. The German central defender wants his coach to continue to shuffle the team in order to get the best out of every player.
Hummels was an integral part in Bayern Munich’s defensive line last season starting 25 league matches yet Niko Kovac restricted him to bench and preferred the partnership of Nikals Sule and Jerome Boateng against Hoffenheim which resulted in 3-1 victory fo Bayern. However, Hummels returned to the pitch against Stuttgart which resulted in a 3-0 victory while Niklas Sule was rested.
Hummels says that he understands his coach needs to be aware of his defensive options because his team plays two games in most of the coming weeks. The player was speaking to Welt am Sonntag was quoted saying “I hope the coach keeps rotating all season long. There will be injured player or suspended. it’s almost winter now and we are having English weeks. Therefore we need qualitative squad and rotation.”
Hummels didn’t speak with the press after the Hoffenheim game but stressed that snubbing press has nothing to do with Niko Kovac restricting him to bench. “If I did not accept the quality of our center-defence then I won’t have a sound self-assessment”. Said Mats Hummels.
