Bayern takes swipe at Germany coach over dropped players

Bayern Munich have released a statement, questioning the "timing and circumstances" following Germany boss Joachim Low's decision not to select Thomas Muller, Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng. We want to give the team a new face.

"The national team's young players will receive the space necessary to develop fully".

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

"2019 is the year of a new start for the German national football team", said Loew.

According to The Sun citing the Bild, the trio, who were sent packing from the Germany national team played important role for European nation as they emerged 2014 FIFA World Cup champions in Brazil.

"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".

All three play for Bayern Munich and were part of the 2014 World Cup winning team but have now had their worldwide careers seemingly ended by Low. "They have to take responsibility now". A coach must make sporting decisions, no problem, I do not have a problem with that.

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.

Joachim Low Confirms Key Bayern Trio Will No Longer Be Considered for German National Team

Bayern added their "surprise" that the announcement took place on the same day Low made an unannounced visit to Bayern's training ground.

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.

"However, I respect the new direction and understand the coach's decision".

Writing on Twitter, Boateng said: "I'm sad to hear this news, as it was always the best thing of all for me to represent my country".

After an extremely disappointing World Cup campaign for Germany in 2018, Mesut Ozil was first to announce his retirement from global football. I was once young myself and depended on older players making room for me.

'I was always extremely proud to wear the national team top and I will never forget the summer of 2014. Even so, I would have liked a different farewell for us, of course.

Thomas Muller says he is angry about the way Joachim Low dumped him from the Germany squad.
