Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels trolls AC Milan

Milan batter Bayern

The AC Milan revolution looked like it was firmly underway when the Rossoneri destroyed Bayern Munich 4-0 in a friendly on Saturday. Was this the first sign that the biggest transfer splurge in Italian history would bear fruit?

Mats Hummels isn’t entirely convinced. The Bayern defender is rated as one of the world’s best centre-halves but had a nightmare against Milan, one GIF showing him being left for dead by a snazzy roulette.

Hummels hits back

One Milan fan wanted to remind him of the scoreline, asking him what he thought of Milan’s game.

Hummels replied: “They played really good that game, no doubt about it. We should play this match again at 20.45 on a Tuesday or Wednesday.” That’s a reference to the Champions League, which Milan haven’t featured in for years.

It’s only a bit of light joshing on social media. All part of the fun of competition. But Hummels’ joke contains a grain of truth: This is only a pre-season friendly and Milan shouldn’t read into it too much.
