One year after being named as club captain following the departure of Sebastian Kehl last summer, Mats Hummels has been confirmed as retaining the Borussia Dortmund captaincy for the forthcoming season.

The 25 year-old central defender, who’ll continue to wear #5, has made 164 appearances in the league for BVB since his £3m move from Bayern Munich (initially a loan deal) in 2009.

Mats Hummels has been capped 41 times by Germany and played in all five of their matches at this summer’s FIFA World Cup, and was named as one of four Dortmund players in last season’s UEFA Champions League Dream Team.
