NATIONS - DFB team: Flick explains Hummels waiver
Hansi Flick has justified why Mats Hummels is missing from the German national team for the international matches against Romania and North Macedonia. As part of the squad announcement, the national coach said:
“We all know what quality Mats is when he's one hundred percent fit. I spoke to Mats on the phone and we both decided that he could use the training days in the free time to take the next step. "
You need "a Mats Hummels who is at 100 percent," says Flick. The 32-year-old defense chief of Borussia Dortmund missed the preparation and the start of the season due to persistent knee problems. Most recently, Hummels returned to the field - before he rejoins the DFB team, the central defender should work on his fitness.
