Thomas Müller, Mats Hummels, and Jerome Boateng have been forced to retire from the German national soccer team
IMAGE SOURCE Joachim Löw, the German coach, has decided not to select three players, including Müller, Hummels and Boateng. Müller, Hummels and Boateng were the centerpiece of the German national team. They also contributed to the FIFA World Cup 2014 World Cup. They also participated in the 2016 European Football Championships, contributing to the quarter finals. Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovač expressed regret over the forced retirement of Thomas Müller, Mats hummels, and Jerome Boateng. But Germany is walking downhill.

The player selection authority is supervised but not a younger player. In addition, there is a criticism that the unilateral notification without prior communication is not an honor for the committed players. Müller complained that he was "angry" through the SNS. Boateng also said, "I respect the decision of the coach but I can do my best in the future. I am sad that I can not play in the national team any more. " Bayern Munich coach Niko Kovač was unhappy. "They are 29 to 30 years old," Kovac said. 30 years old is a veteran. I think I am not right. I played in the national team until I was 37 years old. " The Croatian national team coach Kovac was in his 30s during the World Cup twice in 2002 and 2006 and in the European Football Championship in 2004 and 2008. Bayern Munich was shocked before the Bundesliga leader, UEFA Champions League quarter-finalists (Liverpool), and other important matches. "They will certainly be full of disappointment," Kovac said. But I believe they will overcome it, "he predicted.
