Mats Hummels is about to make a comeback at DFB Cup winner Borussia Dortmund. The defense chief resumed team training after his patellar tendon problems, as did Emre Can, Raphael Guerreiro, Julian Brandt and Thomas Meunier.
This quintet performed loudly early on Friday evening Ruhr news only the Belgian Meunier did not make the trip to the game on Saturday at SC Freiburg.
Hummels is not yet eligible for a starting eleven. Therefore, as at the start of the league against Eintracht Frankfurt (5: 2) and in the Supercup against Bayern Munich (1: 3), the trained midfielder Axel Witsel will help out in central defense.
In front of Freiburg with coach Christian Streich, Rose has the “greatest respect”. In Breisgau it is “always difficult, the SC is an opponent who always believes in himself,” said Rose, who scored his first Bundesliga goal for FSV Mainz 05’s 2-1 win in stoppage time in October 2004 in Freiburg. “Then there were some cold drinks on the way back,” recalled Rose.
