Bundesliga Mats Hummels departs Borussia Dortmund after 13 years of service

After 13 successful years in total, Borussia Dortmund centre-back Mats Hummels (35) is to leave the club.

This decision follows discussions between BVB Managing Director for Sport Lars Ricken, Sporting Director Sebastian Kehl and Mats Hummels this week.

Mats Hummels said: “Borussia Dortmund fans, my time at the Black & Yellows has come to an end after 13 years in total. It was a huge honour and a joy for me to play for BVB for such a long time, and to be almost ever-present on the journey from 13th place in the table in January 2008 to what Borussia Dortmund represents today.

“This club and its fans are special – and for me they’re much more than that. I would also like to thank all the staff at BVB, who do outstanding work for this club, plus of course the countless fantastic coaches and teammates I have worked and played alongside.

“I hope that I can see you all again celebrating on Borsigplatz as soon as possible. Until then, I will be cheering for this club from afar – and hopefully often in the stadium as well. I will miss you all.”
