Löw set to snub three World Cup winners for good

Joachim Löw set to snub three World Cup winners from Die Mannschaft

March 5, 2019 By Oscar Rojas
The German boss admitted that the team needs fresh blood to recover from a disappointing 2018, and these three players will no longer be called up.

Germany will not sit to watch how the parade walks by. Joachim Löw has taken steps to assure that the next generation of players gets a chance to defend the team's jersey, even if that means that some of the team's recent heroes are no longer allowed to play once again for Die Mannschaft.

The German coach revealed today that three players will no longer play for the National Team from 2019 on. Mats Hummels, Jerome Boateng and Thomas Müller are the three players that will no longer play for the 2014 four-time World Cup winners, following a meeting between Die Mannschaft's boss and the trio.

"2019 will mark a new beginning for the German National Team. It was important for me to share my views with them and with Bayern execs. I want to thank Mats, Jerome and Thomas for their contribution to the team's success in the last few years," Löw stated.

Müller has played 100 games for the German National Team, while Boateng and Hummels have played 76 and 70 games for Die Mannschaft's senior team respectively. 

Manuel Neuer and Toni Kroos are the only two remaining members of the 2014 World Cup squad, following the retirements of Sami Khedira and Mesut Özil. Even so, the goalkeeper will no longer be a lock in the team's lineups, with Löw open to give Marc-André Ter Stegen a shot as the first-choice goalie.

"It's time to look ahead. We want to give the team a new face. I'm convinced that this is the right thing to do. Our young internationals will have a chance to develop their skills. It's time for them to step up," Löw concluded.
