Thomas Müller remains available for the German national team. Free bets for him to quit are settled as a loss now. The veteran seemed to announce his retirement after the dramatic retreat from the World Cup, but he came back to that after a conversation with national coach Hansi Flick. “I was very emotional after that game, because it was a sad moment,” said the 33-year-old attacker, who thanked the fans for the years of support in a TV interview after the last group match against Costa Rica and seemed to hint at a farewell as an international.
Thomas Muller wants silverware
“I thought about it later and talked to Hansi,” continued Müller, who is currently at a training camp in Doha with Bayern Munich. “As long as I play professional football, I am always available to be selected. The coach decides if, when and how.” “The goal is to be successful again with Germany. Hansi has a lot of options in attack. I’m very relaxed about it, but I’m always ready when the coach needs me.”
44 goals in 121 international
Müller scored 44 goals in 121 international matches. The attacker won the world title with Germany in 2014. The national team has already been eliminated in the group stage during the last two World Cups. Germany will host the European Championship in 2024. For that tournament, Germany is automatically qualified as the host country. The German is currently preparing with Bayern Munich for the second half of the Bundesliga season, which will resume on January 20. Müller has a contract with ‘Der Rekordmeister’ until the summer of 2024.
