Bayern question timing of Muller Hummels Boateng exclusion from Germany squad

FIFA World Cup 2018 Germany crash out in the group stage after 2-0 loss to South Korea

Thomas Muller, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels were all informed Tuesday that they were no longer in Low's plans, part of an ongoing shake-up following Germany's woeful performance at last year's World Cup.

"I thank Mats, Jerome and Thomas for the many successful, extraordinary and unique years we shared", Loew said in a statement issued by the German FA.

Germany boss Joachim Low reportedly travelled down to Munich to inform the trio who play for Bayern Munich about his decision to drop them from the national team.

According to The Sun citing the Bild, the trio, who were sent packing from the Germany national team played important role for European nation as they emerged 2014 FIFA World Cup champions in Brazil.

Low announced on Tuesday that Muller, along with Bayern Munich team-mates Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels, would no longer be considered for selection.

Saying it was time "to make changes for the future", Low added: "With the Euro 2020 qualifying campaign about to begin, we wanted to make it clear that this is a new start".

Loew made the announcement with Germany to host Serbia on March 20 in a friendly, before playing a Euro 2020 qualifier away to the Netherlands four days later.

"Moreover, we were surprised this happened yesterday as part of an unannounced visit by Joachim Low and Oliver Bierhoff [director of Germany team and Academy] to FC Bayern at Sabener Strasse".

'I have no understanding for the suggested definitiveness of this decision. The youngsters coming through will have the room they need to grow. "I still feel very close to them and I'm grateful for the time together in the national team". "You have to take responsibility now".

"This is the year for our new beginning, ” the coach said".

Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said he was "irritated" by the timing of Low's announcement.

Loew's decision heralds the end of an impressive worldwide career for Mueller, who broke through as a raw 20-year-old at the 2010 World Cup and went on to score 38 goals in 100 appearances.

"I was always extremely proud to be able to wear the national team's jersey, and above all I will never forget the summer of 2014. But I would have obviously wished for a different departure".

Writing on Twitter, Boateng said: "I'm sad to hear this news, as it was always the best thing of all for me to represent my country".
