Mats Hummels follows Terzić and Reus out of Borussia Dortmund

In a surprising turn of events, Borussia Dortmund faces drastic changes as both head coach Edin Terzić and club captain Mats Hummels have announced their departures. Terzić, who led Dortmund to a Champions League final and a DFB-Pokal victory, revealed his decision to leave the club yesterday. Today, Hummels has followed suit, confirming his exit as a free agent after a distinguished career with the club.

Mats Hummels, who has been a central figure in Borussia Dortmund’s defence for over 13 years, took to social media to express his heartfelt farewell to the fans. “Dear fans, my time in black and yellow is now coming to an end after more than 13 years. It has been a huge honour and pleasure for me to have played for BVB for so long and to have been part of the journey from 13th place in January 2008” Hummels stated. “The countless great coaches and fantastic players I have had the honour of meeting here. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that you all meet up again at Borsigplatz as soon as possible to celebrate. I will miss you.”

Hummels leaves Dortmund as a true legend, having played 508 games and won seven trophies, including two Bundesliga titles and DFB-Pokals. His departure marks the end of an era for Borussia Dortmund, with the club expressing gratitude for his contributions and the successful years they shared.

Borussia Dortmund is staring at a significant rebuilding process, having lost three iconic figures since their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid on June 1st. Besides Mats Hummels, it also turned out to be the last match in Borussia’s colours for another club legend, Marco Reus, as well as the team’s manager, Edin Terzić.
