The German defender fondly remembers his old manager’s path with words, but also wanted to show his support for the current boss Lucien Favre
The Liverpool boss made a name for himself in Dortmund in seven years, won two Bundesliga titles and reached the Champions League final.
Klopp’s personality has never been far from the headlines, be it due to his passionate portrayal on the contact line or his sense of humor to the press.
According to Hummels, current boss Lucien Favre takes a significantly different approach – but that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
“After seven years of press conferences with Kloppo here in Dortmund, we got used to the fact that it wasn’t really a press conference, but a late night show,” said Hummels Sky Sports. „[Favre] doesn’t want to give that much away and is more likely to be withdrawn, but if entertainment is your thing, switch to ProSieben [a German television network] at 8.15 p.m. ”
Klopp’s press conferences have not lost entertainment value since moving to the Premier League. She recently quipped that Liverpool would support injured defender Virgil van Dijk, “like a good wife is waiting when the husband is in jail”.
Hummels spoke after Dortmund defeated local rivals Schalke 3-0 in the Revierderby on Saturday. They were recovering from a disappointing midweek Champions League defeat in Lazio and Hummels was keen to throw his support behind the under-attack Favre.
He said: “I think he’s a very good coach and we really enjoy working with him, but I don’t think it’s good to get into these things as a player. There are other people who are responsible for it. ”
Dortmund have now won three games in a row without conceding a goal in the Bundesliga and with five games played one point away from the top of the table.
They have been widely criticized for their performance in Rome, but midfielder Julian Brandt says knee-jerk reactions like this are part of the territory of a large club.
“I’ve got used to it,” said Brandt. “After a bad game or a defeat, unrest can quickly break out. This is completely normal. The guys and staff can handle it. We also had some very, very good games this season. We’ll all keep working together this season, including the coach. ”
