Low insists no decision has been made on recalling Hummels and Muller

Thu 11 March 2021 | 14:25

Since Low told the duo in March 2019 that they, along with Jerome Boateng, had no future with the national team, they haven’t appeared for their country’s national team as the head coach decided to focus on younger talents.

However, since their last November's 6-0 demolition by Spain, the likes of Mesut Ozil asked the German coach to bring those senior players back into the fold as Kicker reported that Muller and Hummels are set to be handed places in Low's Euro 2020 squad.

"I neither opened nor closed the door," he said when asked about Muller and Hummels' possible return.

"I said that, under normal circumstances, you shouldn't interrupt a radical change. We have the pandemic situation, and perhaps you can consider: should I interrupt the upheaval [of the squad] for a tournament?"

Muller's club form in the past two years has led to a clamor for his return to the national team as he was a key component in Bayern’s historical treble in 2019-2020.

Speaking of a possible Germany comeback, he said: "I feel comfortable in the [Bayern] team. Standing on the pitch with the boys is fun, and there are a lot of national team players on the pitch.

"I feel like chasing titles in the summer. We will see if it is the end for me after the Champions League final or whether I will play for the national team. I'm definitely ready."
