Germany national team boss Joachim Low has confirmed today that three Bayern Munich stars will no longer be in his squad.
“2019 is the year of the new start for the German national football team,” said Low.
“Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller will no longer be in the squad of the national team.”
The three starred as Germany won the World Cup for the first time in 24 years in Brazil in 2014.
Following World Cup success, Germany’s crop of 2014 has struggled to recreate that form on the biggest stages.
They were beaten by hosts France in the semi-final of Euro 2016 before being stung with a group-stage elimination at the World Cup in Russia, losing to Mexico and South Korea to finish bottom of their group.
