Borussia Dortmund defender Mats Hummels is hoping his side can end their campaign with second place in the Bundesliga and a cup triumph.
Juergen Klopp’s side have won the title for the past two seasons, but sit 15 points off runaway league leaders Bayern Munich this campaign.
They remain in the hunt for both the DFB-Pokal and the Champions League, and the centre-back is hoping to end the campaign with silverware.
“(Bayer) Leverkusen have shown stable performances and certainly deserve second place,” Hummels told Bild am Sonntag.
“Second place and winning the cup (would now be a perfect end to the season for us).”
Thanks in part to their remarkable European run, Dortmund’s profile has risen this season, and Hummels feels players can become stars at Signal Iduna Park.
“If you are daring enough, then you can,” he said.
“But I do not know if this is a desirable goal. The point is to be successful – and to have fun. Whether I’m famous in every country in the world or not makes no difference to me.”
Dortmund face Bayer Leverkusen on Sunday.
