BVB, Ricken: “How nice if Reus scored the decisive goal on Saturday. Hummels? After Wembley”

Champions League final but not only that. Lars Ricken it also talks about the future. During an interview given to Sky Sports De, the Borussia Dortmund CEO also focused on Marco Reus and Mats Hummels, both whose contracts are expiring. The striker will say goodbye to the team at the end of the season, the defender has not yet decided: “I think there is no room for sentimentality or nostalgia on that day, but for us Marco Reus is simply important. They were emotional days. Marco was able to say goodbye to a certain extent the fans and we as a club were also able to say goodbye to him.

The atmosphere against Darmstadt was unique and I think it did him a lot of justice for what he did for BVB. He is one, if not the icon of the club. Not so much for the titles he has won, but for the attitude he has shown. Even though other clubs might have given him more chances to win titles, he always spoke clearly for Borussia Dortmund and was always here not only on good days, but also on days when things weren’t so good. In the end it would obviously be really nice if Marco managed to score the decisive goal in the Champions League final.

Hummels? Discussions with the players will only take place after Wembley. This was also Mats’ wish and then we will make a joint decision. I think that in the meantime a lot of trust has grown, also in the case of Mats Hummels. I don’t know if the final result could be a reason for his decision, I don’t know how to evaluate it.”
