DFB team. Muller talks comeback | football news

Thomas Muller clearly has no doubts about getting fit in time for the World Cup.

“Okay, everything is on track,” said the 33-year-old international player German Press Agency 6-1 with his FC Bayern Munich match against Werder Bremen. Muller watched Munich’s last home game in the Bundesliga before the World Cup on Tuesday night, again as a spectator at the Allianz Arena due to muscle problems.

The attacker should start the tournament in Qatar without another competitive match. Bayern Munich head coach Julian Nagelsmann announced on Monday that he is also planning a year-end match in Munich at Schalke 04 on Saturday without the 2014 world champions. “The potential for injury is already there if he shows up too early,” Nagelsman said in justification. Since all players are otherwise attack-friendly, you don’t need to take any risks. “I think it’s also beneficial to him,” Nagelsman said after the conversation with Mueller.

Mueller in “stop-and-go” mode.

“I would just like to give him some peace and quiet before the World Cup to allow the structure to fully heal,” explained the “Bayern” coach. National coach Hansi Flick will announce his World Cup squad this Thursday (12:00) in Frankfurt. Muller is considered among the maximum 26 players. The 118-time national player (44 goals) definitely wants to play his fourth World Cup.

He has recently been hampered by back, hip and hamstring issues. Müller last came on as a substitute in the 3-0 win over Barcelona in the Champions League at the end of October. He himself spoke about the unusual “stop-and-go mode” for him.

He is out again after the attempt in Barcelona. The only test before the first World Cup group game against Japan (November 23) is Muller’s international match against Oman next Wednesday in Muscat. On November 17, the DFB team will advance to the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Qatar.
