Muller Boateng and Hummels will no longer play for Germany - Low

Bayern Munich’s Thomas Mueller looks dejected after the Bundesliga match against Freiburg in Munich

Germany coach Joachim Loew is not planning to call up world champions Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Mueller any longer, saying the team needs to look to the future. With the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign about to begin, we wanted to make it clear that this is a new start. The youngsters coming through will have the room they need to grow.

"It was important to me personally to explain my thoughts and plans to the players and managers of FC Bayern", added Loew, who flew to Munich to speak to the trio.

"They are all still world-class players who are at the forefront of their club and guarantee success".

"2019 is a new beginning for the Germany national team", he said.

All three helped Germany win the World Cup in 2014 but were unable to prevent the side finishing bottom of their group in a botched defence four years later.

"Basically, we do not comment on sporting decisions of the national coach, the nomination of the squad of the national team is exclusively the responsibility of Joachim Low".

Loew flew to Munich on Tuesday to tell Mueller, 29, Boateng and Hummels, both 30, who have 246 appearances for Germany between them, that their global careers are over.

Loew's decision heralds the end of an impressive global career for Mueller, who broke through as a raw 20-year-old at the 2010 World Cup and went on to score 38 goals in 100 appearances. "Now it's up to them to take on responsibility".

"I continue to feel very connected to them, and am thankful for the time we spent together in the national team".

Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said he was "irritated" by the timing of Low's announcement.

Hummels and Boateng, Germany's successful centre-back partnership before the disaster at the finals in Russian Federation, have played in 70 and 76 internationals respectively.

'I am sad about this news because it has always been the greatest thing for me to represent my country.

Germany's Thomas Mueller during the World Cup 2018.

"I do not understand why this decision must be so final". I was always proud to wear the jersey, I've given everything, I want to thank you for your support, it was an incredible journey'. Of course, I would have wished for another farewell for us.

At the weekend, Low also indicated that goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, another Bayern star, could lose his place in the Germany squad.
