Mario Goezte's Bayern Munich switch angers Mats Hummels

Having suffered a hamstring injury in April, Goetze was unable to play in Dortmund's 2-1 defeat to Bayern Munich in May's Champions League final at Wembley. Goetze's transfer makes him the second highest transfer in Bundesliga history behind the 40 million euros (US$52m, £34m) Bayern paid for Javi Martinez in August 2012.

Berlin: Germany defender Mats Hummels has admitted he was angry to hear Borussia Dortmund and national team-mate Mario Goetze had decided to leave the Champions League finalists to join Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich.

Rising star Goetze, 21, actioned a release clause in his Dortmund contract to allow him to join Bayern for 37 million euros (US48m, £31m) and news of the transfer broke in April, just before Dortmund's Champions League semi-final win over Real Madrid.

But Hummels, 24, was bemused why Goetze wanted to join Champions League winners Bayern from a Dortmund side which won back-to-back Bundesliga titles in 2010-11 and 2011-12 and could not understand the decision.
