Joachim Löw did not get the farewell he desired as Die Mannschaft crashed out of the Euro 2020 after a disappointing 2-0 defeat against England in the Round of 16. With that, fifteen long years of the Jogi era has come to an end and Hansi Flick has taken up the baton. We are now left with the questions regarding the future of some of the German veterans.
We have an update! According to Bild, we would be seeing Thomas Müller and Mats Hummels line up for the national team under Flick. Müller has no intentions to retire and hopes to travel to Qatar for next year’s World Cup. He has allegedly gotten the green light from Flick about his future and is very likely to continue.
The case is somewhat the same with Hummels. Although, the player is yet to make any contact with the new coach. The decision will be made only after he gets confirmation about whether or not he would be a part of Flick’s system.
And last but not least, Toni Kroos is pondering his exit from international football. He was on the verge of retirement back in 2018 but extended his stay because of Löw. It is very likely for the player to actually move forward with his decision this time.
The final decisions will be made by the players in the coming months and what we have until then are nothing more than mere speculation.
