Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller not eager to discuss Joachim Löw after victory at Werder Bremen

Immediately after Bayern Munich’s 3-1 win over Werder Bremen, Thomas Müller was made available for postgame media questions and things went a bit sideways when the subject of Joachim Löw — and the upcoming vacancy for the German national team’s manager position — took center stage.

Müller made his best effort to pivot away from the topic.

“I have not yet formed an opinion on this. What we Germans should actually be interested in is that we are successful in the summer. So I don’t understand the discussion,” Müller said (as captured by Tz).

The Sky reporter who led the questioning pressed on that many people find the job opening to be a fascinating point of discussion. The reporter was also undeterred in trying to coax some sort of response on the subject from Müller, but the star player did what he does best — interpret some space to find a way through the discussion without causing any harm.

“I understand you have to ask that, but I’m currently not the right man to answer this question. Maybe when I’m no longer active,” Müller remarked while slyly laughing and knowing that there was no way he was going to say anything that might cause a media fracas.
