Thomas Mueller claimed on Sunday that he is not intended in a recall to the Germany squad for Euro 2020 even though inspiring recent displays for Bayern Munich.
That is of definitely no interest to me at all. All I am motivated on is playing well for this shirt, said Mueller after Sunday’s goalless league appeal with Leipzig. Euro Cup fans can purchase Germany Euro Cup Tickets online to enjoy its stunning performances.
Laterally with fellow 2014 World Cup champions Mats Hummels and Jerome Boateng, Mueller was rudely told by Germany head coach Joachim Loew in March that his global career is ended.
Mueller has been in countless fresh form with seven goals and nine assists in his last 15 playoff for Bayern.
Loew understands the next age group, including Bayern winger Serge Gnabry, Manchester City’s Leroy Sane and Dortmund’s Julian Brandt, onward of the 30-year-old Mueller.
However, Loew, who driven the domestic squad to the 2014 World Cup, insisted the gate is still open for the Mueller, Hummels and Boateng to play yet again for Germany, who face containers Portugal and world champions France in their Euro 2020 group.
“Occasionally things occur which you cannot excuse for, then one has to see because you always need the uppermost quality in the squad,” he said at half-time of Bayern’s draw with Leipzig.
Bayern bosses urge Loew to recall Mueller for Euro 2020
Bayern Munich bosses are advising Germany head coach Joachim Loew to recall Mueller to the domestic team and take the in-form onward to the Euro 2020 finals.
Loew released a shock in March 2019 by axing Mueller, plus fellow 2014 World Cup victors Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels.
Loew ditched the trio to rebuild the German team after the debacle at the 2018 World Cup when the defending champions finished last in their group and failed to reach the knock-out stages in Russia.
The game is not over yet, was Mueller’s response after his dismissal last March.
He irritating Loew at the time, saying the way he was learned of the conclusion was not in good grace, it had nil to do with gratitude after 100 appearances and 38 goals for Germany.
Loew’s team face world champions France and ruling European champions Portugal in their group for the Euro 2020 championships.
There are calls to reinstate Mueller for March’s friendlies against Spain and Italy and the 30-year-old’s current form makes Loew’s decision hard to justify.
He has set up 12 goals in the Bundesliga this season, the most assists in Germany’s top tier, scoring four goals in Bayern’s last seven league games.
Mueller hit the net and had another goal disallowed in Saturday’s 5-0 rout of Schalke and is thriving since Hansi Flick replaced Niko Kovac as Bayern head coach in November.
“Thomas is adoring an Indian summer, which is vital for us, we want his goals and assists,” said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz.
As a matter of principle, I do not want to give Jogi Loew any advice.
I always say if someone plays fine, and I hope that Thomas will remain to play at this top-level, then perhaps there will be a reconsideration. Bayern president Herbert Hainer was blunter.
Every team needs a Thomas Mueller and it does not matter whether that is in Munich or at the European championships, said the 65-year-old.

Hummels, 31, is also enjoying a spell of good form at center back with Borussia Dortmund and there were similar calls for his return to the national side last October.
