Borussia Dortmund star Mats Hummels admits he would like his teammates to be a bit more vocal on the pitch at times.

The 30-year-old says he's happy to take on responsibility as one of the team's leaders and does what he can to 'drive, order and cheer' during games.

"I try to fill that role in life and take responsibility. Especially on the pitch where I verbally try to drive, order and cheer," Hummels said in an interview with Goal and DAZN and added:

"It is already an issue in our team that sometimes we are a bit quiet. That is why it is very important that the leaders take the lead.

"And also, outside of the pitch, you have to perform this role positively and as a role model for appointments, interviews and autograph sessions," Hummels explained.

The 30-year-old re-joined his former club from Bayern München in the summer.
