Joachim Low Axes Three German Superstars

German coach Joachim Low has made a shocking announcement as he axes three superstars from any of his future plans with the national team.

In an interview with the ‘Bild’, a German tabloid, Low revealed that he would no longer call-up Thomas Muller, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels as the team looks to build for the future and give the German national team a ‘new face’.

“Jerome Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller will no longer be in the squad of the national team,” Low told Bild.

“I thank Mats, Jerome and Thomas for the many successful, extraordinary and unique years we shared, but in the national team it is now all about laying the foundations for the future.

“We want to give the team a new face. I am convinced that this is the right step.”

All three players have struggled for form this season at Bayern Munich and with 246 international caps between them (Hummels - 70 caps, Muller - 100 and Boateng - 76) it is certainly the end of an era.

The trio were part of the 2014 World Cup-winning team, but were also part of the team that crashed out of the 2018 World Cup in the group stage, the German’s earliest exit in 80 years.

“Thomas, Mats and Jerome have achieved a lot until now for German football,” added Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff.

“They will continue to do so for their club. I continue to feel very connected to them and am thankful for the time we spent together in the national team.”
