Former Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeneß is taking his job as an RTL pundit for the Euro 2020 competition very seriously.
Part of those responsibilities include proving insight and opinion on what he thinks Germany needs to be successful. As you can probably guess, Thomas Müller helps check off a lot of boxes on what Germany will need to be a contender at the European Championships.
“You can’t do without a player who is a formative figure in the Bundesliga and the Champions League at Bayern. It’s not about a youth team that you have to build up, but about a team that is supposed to win something,” said Hoeneß (as captured by Abendzeitung).
Hoeneß, who has never been afraid to be critical of the DFB or Germany manager Joachim Löw, thinks re-adding Müller to the national team mix is vital, especially since this is Löw’s last opportunity to win the Euros as national team manager.
”Especially now, when it is Jogi Löw’s last tournament, the best have to play,” Hoeneß said. “And Thomas is undoubtedly one of the best in Germany. That’s why he has to play at the European Championship.”
