Rummenigge ‘irritated’ after Loew ditches Bayern trio

Joachim Low has listed three Germany national team players -Thomas Muller, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels claiming that they will represent the European nation again.

Loew made the announcement with Germany to host Serbia on March 20 in a friendly, then play a Euro 2020 qualifier away to the Netherlands four days later and wants a "new start". The youngsters coming through will have the room they need to grow.

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

"We want to continue the upheaval that we initiated at the end of previous year".

Low said on Tuesday that the World Cup winning-trio will no longer be considered for global selection.

"I welcome the fact that he is now making decisive progress in transforming our national team and starting the qualification for EURO 2020 is the right time for personnel changes", said Grindel. "They have to take responsibility now".

Bierhoff also thanked Boateng, Hummels and Muller, adding: "They have achieved a lot for German football".

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

Muller, who is the ninth highest ever scorer for Germany having netted 38 goals in 100 appearances, said in a video posted on his Twitter account: "The longer I think about it, the more I get angry about the way this happened".

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

"You could have thrown these three players out of the national team two months ago, after so many years of merit, and not a week before the important match in the Champions League".

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.

"But it's mostly the character of the decision that I don't understand".

The 59-year-old Germany boss has been under pressure to make sweeping changes since his side crashed out of the 2018 World Cup in the first round.

'I was always extremely proud to wear the national team top and I will never forget the summer of 2014. "But I would have obviously wished for a different departure".

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