The attacking midfielder was exiled from the national team two years ago with the DFB manager deciding to move on from the old guards.


Joachim Low has opened the door for a possible Germany return for Thomas Muller.

Low announced on March 2019 that Muller, who appeared to be on a steady decline under Niko Kovac last season, would no longer be part of his national team plans.

The midfielder went on to have a remarkable season as he inspired Bayern Munich to a treble while notching up 14 goals and 26 assists across all competitions in 2019-20.


The DFB head coach, who also discarded Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels, received much criticism due to his controversial decisions, especially after the team’s poor recent performances in the Nations League 2020.

“When you start an upheaval, you should never abandon it & go in a different direction. But the pandemic took away almost a year, so now you can really consider interrupting the upheaval if it’s absolutely necessary,” Low told in an interview with Sportschau.

Asked about potential comebacks for Hummels, Boateng, and Muller, he responded: “If I think we still need some additional percentage or some energy providers, from a footballing or a leadership point of view.


“We won’t exclude anything; I can promise you that.”
