It has been said many times that “hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.” Today, Niko Kovac found that out the hard way from Cathy Hummels, wife of former Bayern Munich center-back and current Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels. Mrs. Hummels offered a spunky retort to claims about her husband.
We covered the report earlier today where Kovac intimated that Mats Hummels opted to leave Bavaria rather than compete with Lucas Hernandez for a starting role. When that story started to blow up, Cathy Hummels took to Instagram to refute the claim that her husband was scared of competing for his job. Specifically, Mrs. Hummels used duck emojis to say that Kovac’s statements were false.

The full image of the response by Cathy Hummels is below:
Just yesterday, we had Karl-Heinz Rummenigge offering a snippy response to Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc’s assertion that Mats Hummels was the “best German defender.” Today, was just the latest in what is quickly becoming an ongoing feud.
While this certainly will add to the Bayern-Dortmund rivalry, I think all parties should just duck-ing move on.
