Mats Hummels: Full of praise for former boss Jurgen Klopp

Germany coach Joachim Low and Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels have added to the praise of Liverpool-bound Jurgen Klopp.

Klopp’s appointment as the new Liverpool manager could be confirmed on Thursday, with an official unveiling expected on Friday.

Low sees similarities between Liverpool and Dortmund.

“He had an extraordinarily successful time in Dortmund. He released loads of emotions in the Dortmund crowd,” said Low.

“If you look at it from afar there are some parallels between Dortmund and Liverpool with the fantastic supporters’ culture.

“Klopp would be a great addition to any team.”

Hummels, who joined Klopp’s Dortmund from Bayern Munich in 2008 and was a key figure in their success, had nothing but praise for his former boss.

“There is no doubt about it, he is a fantastic coach, he’s absolutely great,” said the centre-back, speaking in Dublin ahead of Germany’s Euro 2016 qualifier with Ireland on Thursday.

“You thought, ‘What is he going to do post-Dortmund?’, then clubs like Liverpool certainly came into the frame.

“He lives, eats, breathes and thinks football day after day.

“He will be a fantastic addition and I am certainly keeping my fingers crossed for the next step in his career.”
