Loew retracts his decision and calls on 3 veterans he sacked from the German national team

The coach of the German national football team, Joachim Low, opened the door for the first time on Sunday to the possibility of returning veterans Thomas Muller, Jerome Boateng and Mats Hummels to the “Manshafts” ranks to participate in the European Cup finals next summer.
Loew, who was criticized for many of the team’s disappointing offers after his decision to bet on the new generation by excluding many of the main pillars that made the glories of the German national team in the World Cup in Brazil in 2014, said in a statement to the ARD channel: “When we start the renewal, we must not. We cut it, and go back completely. ”
Loew, who previously clung to the decision to exclude veterans after the disastrous exit from the group stage of the World Cup 2018 in Russia, added: “But the truth is that the (Corona) epidemic deprived us for nearly a year of preparation, and therefore we can now ask whether we should stop this renewal if This has become very necessary ».
These words seem to be the beginning of a shift in Loew’s decision, under pressure from the media in his country, to return Bayern Munich stars Thomas Muller and Jerome Boateng who shone remarkably and led their team to the Champions League title last season, and Borussia Dortmund defense mats Mats Hummels.
This trio was excluded by Loew in March 2019, and calls for their return to the national team multiplied after several disappointing performances, especially his humiliating loss to Spain with a half-dozen clean goals last November, which nearly cost Loew his post.
Loew said that he wants to make a decision to return them next May, and that he does not intend to summon them next month in preparation for the start of the qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup.
Loew, who has coached the “Manshafts” since 2006, said that players like Muller, Hummels and Boateng could, if necessary, “quickly return to the national team.” We are fully aware of that, and we know that within the national team, that will not be a problem. ”
