Mats Hummels Angrily Punches Interview Board On TV After Borussia Dortmund Defeat

Mats Hummels Angrily Punches Interview Board On TV After Borussia Dortmund Defeat

Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels angrily lashed out at an advertising backboard before a TV interview after his side's latest defeat.

This was no love tap. The 32-year-old, given the surely unwelcome task of post-match interview duties after Borussia's 2-1 defeat to Union Berlin on Friday, walked round to face the cameras, then swung back his fist and absolutely thumped the perspex ad board behind him.

His frustration was understandable. It was Borussia's third defeat in their last five Bundesliga matches. Last Saturday's 5-1 defeat at home to Stuttgart led to the sacking of manager Lucien Favre, with Edin Terzic taking over on an interim basis.

At least Terzic knows his experienced centre-back cares about the club's struggles.

Either that or he really, really hates some of Union Berlin's and the Bundesliga's sponsors.

As well as the overall result, Hummels may have been frustrated by his missed header that led to Berlin's first goal of the night. However it wasn't an error on Hummel's part as the only reason he was desperately trying to get to the ball was a result of poor marking from his teammates.

Borussia's 16-year-old striker Youssoufa Moukoko actually became the youngest player to score in the Bundesliga when he levelled the game for the visitors. But a second set-piece goal gave Union Berlin the win.

Borussia Dortmund Could 'Sell Up To EIGHT Players' As German Club Struggles This Season

"The opponent's strongest header of balls was left wide open," a visibly angry Hummels said post-match after Marvin Friedrich's winner, "despite clear assignments for every player.

"For me, that's incomprehensible. We're throwing ourselves into the fire. We're responsible for our own defeats."

The result leaves Borussia fourth in the table with 22 points from 13 games, six points behind leaders Bayer Leverkusen who have a game in hand. Union Berlin are fifth in the standings.

Still, the most important "standing" after this night was that advertising screen which stood up to Hummels' backfist without even a crack.

We're definitely building our next house out of whatever on earth that board is made of. Just in case Mats comes knocking on our door and we need it to be able to take the force of his mighty blows.
