Dortmund (AP) – The commitment of Mats Hummels and Thorgan Hazard for Borussia Dortmund on Saturday against VfB Stuttgart is still unclear.
“I can’t say for sure yet. I haven’t seen the players since the return flight,” said Dortmund coach Lucien Favre. Hummels and Hazard were substituted in the 2-1 Champions League at Zenit St. Petersburg. “I hope it was just convulsions. It’s normal for many players to be tired,” said Favre after the game.
The Swiss also took his captain Marco Reus under protection. After a long break after an injury, the 31-year-old is still on his feet. “I’ve always said it will take him some time to get fit. He’s coming back from a serious injury. He’s not used to the fast pace,” said Favre.
