Thomas Muller: ‘Angry’ Bayern Munich forward vows his Germany career is not over yet in video post

Thomas Muller says he is angered by the news that Jocahim Low has ended his hugely successful international career with Germany. 

This week Low announced “a new beginning” for Germany following their disappointing World Cup and Nations League performances, and said it was time to give the next generation an opportunity to thrive.

Three experienced World Cup winners – Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Muller – were cut from the squad to face Serbia in a March friendly and told their services are no longer required. 

“I was perplexed by the national coach’s decision,” said Muller, who won more than 100 caps for his country. “But the more I think about it, the way it happened just makes me angry. 

“I have no time for the finality of the decision that has been made for me. Mats, Jerome and I can still play top-level football. We have been with the DFB for a long and mostly successful time over the last few years.

“Then, shortly after we were told of the decision, pre-prepared statements from the DFB and the DFB President were delivered to the press. There’s no class to that, and it has nothing to do with appreciation.

“Now to you fans. I was always proud to wear the Germany jersey and I always gave my all. I want to thank you for your incredible support. It was an amazing adventure, with 100 caps and so many shared experiences.”

Bayern Munich have also expressed their frustration with the “irritating timing” of the national setup’s announcement 

“Those who know me know I’m a fighter. I’ll look to the future. With Bayern, we have an exciting of the season ahead of us where we’re battling for all three trophies. And, with this in mind, I just want to say: The game isn’t over yet.”
