Thomas Müller will not be part of the Germany squad in the coming months, coach Hansi Flick has announced.
Hansi Flick has revealed that Bayern Munich’s Thomas Muller will not be part of the Germany squad for the upcoming matches in March and June.
“I have discussed with Thomas that he will not be called up for the games in March and June. But that doesn’t mean that his DFB career is over or that he won’t play a role in the European Championship,” the Germany coach. told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung.
“He sees things the same way I do: As a national team player, you don’t retire. You either get called up or you don’t, and he’s now on hold until the summer”.
“Why should I close the door on a player like that forever? Look at his current importance for Bayern. He’s totally important again and I’m very happy for him,” Flick stressed.
On Friday, Flick will announce his squad for the friendlies against Peru (March 25) and Belgium (March 28).
