Minutes after AZ broke a story regarding a reported group of Bayern players trying to get rid of Niko Kovač, Mats Hummels tweeted his replies.
Dagegen wehren bringt ja leider auch nichts, man muss es wohl einfach über sich ergehen lassen...— Mats Hummels (@matshummels) November 5, 2018
Defending one’s self unfortunately doesn’t accomplish anything either, you just have to let it wash over you...
Das ist doch genau das was ich mit meinem ersten Tweet meinte. Das was du schreibst wäre „sich dagegen wehren“ und auch das würde nichts bringen https://t.co/7mKyvH4BMu— Mats Hummels (@matshummels) November 5, 2018
Hey people, I have to briefly clarify that these allegations that some media outlets are putting out are simply complete nonsense. We’re not at our best at the moment, but we’re doing everything to change that, you can count on it, your Mats.
To which Hummels replied:
That’s exactly what I meant by my first tweet. What you write would be “defending oneself” and that wouldn’t accomplish anything.
Hummels adamantly denied the allegations, and explained Bayern’s form as the fact that they simply aren’t at their best right now. Personally, I would rather there be some conspiracy within the Bayern camp than the team just be totally incompetent to the point of not being able to beat Freiburg. At least then we would know that the record champions still have talent and aren’t being overthrown.
What are your thoughts on the whole situation? Is it purely speculation? Are you even surprised? Let us know in the comments!
