Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp says he considers Mats Hummels the best German central defender.
Klopp used to work with Hummels at Borussia Dortmund and is pleased that the 30-year-old has returned to Signal Iduna Park from Bayern München.
"He's the best German centre-back. I'm happy about his return to Dortmund. He just fits in there," Klopp told reporters and added:
"We have always stayed in contact. He's a natural leader, but not always easy to get along with."
Hummels left Dortmund to join Bayern München in 2016, but was recently brought back by BVB.
