Freiburg defender Nico Schlotterbeck has waxed lyrical about Germany teammate and fellow centre-back Niklas Süle.

Asked if he has any role models in the team, Schlotterbeck told Sport1:

"I'm a big fan of Niklas Süle, of his playing style and how he handles everything. He's a calm player, who is totally serious on the pitch.

"He really always performs very well and also started representing Germany at a very young age like myself."

Schlotterbeck also gave a shout-out to two players, who are not currently in the squad.

"Earlier, I used to cheer for [Jerome] Boateng and [Mats] Hummels," he said.

The 22-year-old has been linked with a move to Borussia Dortmund, who Süle will join from Bayern München this summer.
