Many outlets reported about Mats Hummels having a rift with Borussia Dortmund’s current German manager, Lucien Favre.

Everything started when Dortmund barely salvaged a point against Paderborn.

Hummels went publicly against his manager, complaining about his tactics.

“Let’s just put it this way, it would be easier to press in a 4-1-4-1 and I’ll leave it at that,” as quoted by Goal.

However, he now denied any possible speculation about rift with the manager.

“There are no differences with the coach, this is nonsense,” he told Bild.

“We have a very good relationship and we talk a lot, we talk a lot.

The spirits are rising after a 2-1 win over Herta, despite Hummels receiving a red card.

The BVB will now try to fight for the Bundesliga title in a fierce competition.
