Poise instead of pose, honest and straightforward: Mats Hummels is the kind of guy who’d rather be center stage than in the background. His family in Munich and his friends and teammates have always played their part in ensuring he stays down-to-earth with his feet firmly on the ground. For them, he is just Mats and not the famous Hummels from the TV. Their son, brother, friend – who admires Zidane, tries his hand at cooking and likes to longboard around the neighborhood with his dog in tow. Who wishes he could be better at shooting hoops and loves every kind of ice cream.
