Video: Furious Mats Hummels smashes interview board with backfist after Borussia Dortmund lose to Union Berlin

Posted by

Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels was absolutely livid after the side’s 2-1 defeat to Union Berlin on Friday evening, which made it three defeats from their last five Bundesliga matches.

Hummels, as one of the most experienced and high-profile members of the squad, was chosen for post-match interview duties, but the defeat was still too fresh in the star’s mind, leading to a shock moment…

As the centre-back stepped up to the microphone, Hummels charged his right hand up and hammered a backfist into the interview board, which displays Union Berlin specific and also league sponsors.

Hummels missed a header that led to Berlin’s first goal of the night, however this wasn’t his fault at all as he contested the aerial duel late as a result of no one marking Marvin Friedrich.

Hats off to whoever designs and purchases those boards though, it stood completely firm and looked like it took no damage at all after a full-pelt strike from the Germany international.

Dortmund are being led by Edin Terzic on an interim basis after sacking Lucien Favre following an embarrassing 5-1 defeat to Stuttgart last week.

Friday’s loss leaves Dortmund five points behind Bayern Munich and RB Leipzig, who could extend that to an eight-point lead as they haven’t played their games this weekend yet.
