Liverpool fans will love Mats Hummels latest one word tweet!

The defender was linked with a move to Premier League but his latest will bring joy to Liverpool fans.

It’s often a sense of excitement when football stars answer your question on social media. The answer definitely catches some headlines and could also hint a move or exit towards a club. It seems Mats Hummels have brought a smile to many fans of Liverpool by his latest one-word tweet.

Bayern Munich defender Mats Hummels was conducting a Q&A on Twitter on Saturday afternoon when one follower asked: “Do you think Van Dijk is the best CB in the world right now? Hummels’ answer? “Yes.” When Liverpool spent £75 million on Virgil van Dijk 12 months ago, many football fans questioned their decision. The Dutchman had spent the months prior to Liverpool’s bid sulking at Southampton after he was denied a move to Anfield in the summer. So, was he really worth a world-record fee for a defender? A year later and absolutely nobody is questioning the fee Liverpool paid for Van Dijk.

That’s because he’s completely transformed Jurgen Klopp’s defence with a series of world-class performances. In fact, Van Dijk has performed so well since arriving at Liverpool that he’s created an argument that he might just be the best centre-back in world football right now. Hummels will actually go face-to-face with Van Dijk when Bayern Munich and Liverpool clash in the Champions League last-16 stage in February. However, the German defender has struggled to play regularly this season for the Bundesliga giants. Niklas Sule and Jerome Boateng being preferred to him. There were very mild suggestions that Hummels could join Liverpool on loan this January. But they were nonsensical with Joel Matip, Joe Gomez and Dejan Lovren all returning to action very shortly.

Author’s Take:

Van Dijk has helped Liverpool keep 13 Premier League clean-sheets this season. He has helped the Reds keep 20 clean sheets in his 36 games since joining from Southampton. That’s an insane record. Almost as insane as the fact that in all competitions this term, he hasn’t been dribbled past once. The arrival of Van Dijk did turn the fortunes of the Red and it’s because of him that Liverpool isn’t leaking goals as they did in previous seasons.
