Discussion as to who will succeed the Die Mannschaft World Cup-winning coach when he finally steps down in the summer continues to rage on.

Thomas Muller has “not yet formed an opinion” on who will take the managerial reigns of the Germany national team from Joachim Low.

Muller, who hasn’t played for his national team since 2018, says he is more interested in seeing how Germany performs at the Euro 2020.

Low is set to step down as the head coach of the DFB-Elf after this summer’s European Championship.

It will mark the end of an era for Die Mannschaft, as the 61-year-old has guided the team to World Cup glory and Confederations Cup success during his 15 years in charge.

However, his position has come under intense scrutiny in recent times, particularly due to the horrendous 2018 World Cup performance and the decision to leave out some key players from his team selection.

A number of names have come as his potential successor, including Jurgen Klopp, Hansi Flick, Julian Nagelsmann, and Ralf Rangnick.

“I have not yet formed an opinion, that is also not the most interesting thing,” Muller responded when asked to name Low’s heir, via Goal.

“What actually interests us Germans is that we will be successful in the summer. We want to be successful at the European Championships and not know who the successor is.”
