Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels has no problem with Nico Kovac’s rotation policy and is ready to fight for his place. Bayern have started the season well with two wins from two for new boss Kovac, who has been happy to rotate his squad since taking charge at the Allianz Arena.
Hummels found himself on the bench for the clash against Hoffenheim, but he is not ready to start beating down Kovac’s door asking for an explanation.
It is a long season ahead and the experienced defender says everyone will find themselves warming the bench at some point and you just have to get on with it.
“I do not need a bonus,” Hummels said. “Everyone is sitting on the bench, in every department of the team. It would be very pretentious to the other two if I did not accept not to play once. Because Jerome and Niki are just sensational centre-backs.”
