, who has returned to the national team, insists that he never got mad at


for leaving him out of the


squad and says that despite being a blow for him, it was understandable considering his form.

Reflecting on Low’s decision to drop him from the Germany squad, Muller told


"It was definitely a blow for me personally, but my situation back then wasn’t comparable with the last year and a half.

“It wasn’t exactly plain sailing for me and so I understood Jogi’s decision from a sporting point of view. I got what he meant. It’s all in the past, though. Things have changed massively in the time since.

“It’s been a great period for me with FC Bayern; I’ve performed well and also had time to relax. Getting away from the grind during the international breaks was good for my body, spirit, soul and family. But it’s always a special honor to be able to represent Germany at a tournament.”

Now that the player has the chance to present his country again, he has praised the high-profile coach and says that he is happy to be able to play on the international level for his country.

"Jogi Low has a lot of energy. He gets right to the heart of things,”

added the 31-year-old


“That's what he expects from the team as well. We spoke plenty on the phone but there were no negotiations. The first conversation was about feeling each other out, getting an idea of where we stood: what do we both expect from each other? Are we headed in the same direction? We had a right good exchange of ideas. We both asked ourselves questions: How do we see this going? Is it a good fit?

"In two or three further discussions, the focus was then on the organizational side of things. Right from the start, I had the feeling that both sides wanted the same thing: maximum success. That's why we are together now.”
