Joachim Löw has confirmed that Jérôme Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Müller will be dropped from the upcoming Germany squad.
Die Mannschaft endured a terrible 2018, going out int he group stages of the Russia World Cup and getting relegated from their Nations League group.
Plenty of people in the country have called for an overhaul of the squad, and now the coach has confirmed that the Bayern trio will be missing from the squad to face Serbia and Netherlands this month.
“2019 is the year of the new start for the German national football team,” he told Bild.
“We want to continue the upheaval that we initiated at the end of last year.
“Jérôme, Mats and Thomas will no longer be in the squad. It was important for me to personally explain it to them today.”
