Sandro Wagner announced his retirement from international football after failing to make the German's World Cup squad.

The Bayern forward was involved in Germany's FIFA Confederations Cup success last year, but Low did not take too kindly with Wagner's criticism.

"I can understand a little bit that he is disappointed, that's clear," Low told Bild. "I find his reaction a bit exaggerated.

"Everyone who knows us knows how we always encourage players to speak out, to be open and honest, to be critical. These things are very important to us.

"He says that others do not open their mouths. What should Jerome [Boateng], Mats [Hummels] think? That's totally nasty.

"I feel that the criticism of Wagner is criticism directed at his team-mates. He acts as if some players who have been playing for us forever and are leading players are complete idiots. As if they were only in the team because they don't say their opinion."
