Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt has resigned as the head doctor for the German national team, calling it a career after 23 years. Müller-Wohlfahrt announced his decision via press release:

I have decided to step down as doctor of the German national team. I have informed Oliver Bierhoff and Jogi Löw about this today. I had 23 fantastic years in the DFB with magnificent successes and impressive experiences. Wonderful friendships have grown during this time; the atmosphere was always characterized by great trust. I will always stay closely tied to the national team and the DFB in the future, and I wish everyone much success with their new beginning. If my advice is sought, I will gladly be at their service any time.

Müller-Wohlfahrt, known for his controversial treatments, first joined Die Mannschaft in the mid-1990s and worked with the team for their victories in the 1996 Euros and 2014 World Cup.

Müller-Wohlfahrt will continue to work with Bayern Munich, where he has been the team doctor since 1977.
