The defensive leader of Dortmund has been deeply impressed by Sancho last season. “He can be the player who will make the difference,” Hummels tells IMAGE. “He has potential, there is no limit to that. If he wants to show it with us for another year or more, I am very happy.”
Hummels hopes to be able to take the next step with his team next season. “This is a great opportunity for us to become even stronger,” he continues. “We have to make sure that we take a step forward again, that must be our goal next season. I have the feeling that we can do a lot more.”
Dortmund director Michael Zorc previously announced that a Sancho departure for the club is no longer negotiable. “We are counting on Jadon Sancho to stay with us this season, the decision is final. I think that will answer all questions,” he said.
