Low announced on Tuesday that he would no longer be considering Boateng, Mats Hummels and Thomas Muller for DFB selection as Germany aim to recover from their 2018 World Cup embarrassment.

DFB director and national-team coordinator Oliver Bierhoff was also supportive of the move, proclaiming: "We now want to make it clear that this is a new beginning for the squad".

"The national team's young players will receive the space necessary to develop fully".

"The coach's sudden decision obviously left me puzzled".

"They are all still world-class players who are at the forefront of their club and guarantee success". We want to give the team a new look.

Mueller, Boateng and Hummels were at the core of the side which won the 2014 World Cup, but the trio were off form during poor displays by the entire team in Russian Federation previous year. "You have to take responsibility now". "At the same time, we question the timing and circumstances of the announcement of this decision to the players and the public".

"Thomas Muller (100 worldwide caps), Mats Hummels (70) and Jerome Boateng (76) have played a total of 246 games for Germany and they helped shape an extremely successful decade for the DFB with winning the World Cup in 2014 being an absolute highlight".

Bayern chief Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said he was "irritated" by the timing of Low's announcement.

Following his sacking as Man United manager in December, reports linked Mourinho with a return to the club he managed between 2010 and 2013.

Muller, who is the ninth highest ever scorer for Germany having netted 38 goals in 100 appearances, said in a video posted on his Twitter account: "The longer I think about it, the more I get angry about the way this happened".

Hummels and Boateng, Germany's successful centre-back partnership before the disaster at the finals in Russian Federation, have played in 70 and 76 internationals respectively.

"I don't understand it at all", he said.

"I was always extremely proud to wear the national team top ands I will never forget the summer of 2014".

"I am sad about this news because it has always been the greatest thing for me to represent my country", the defender wrote on Instagram. Of course, I would have wished for another farewell for us.

"I was young myself and reliant on older players to make room for me".

Low won the World Cup with Germany in 2014 and thrashed hosts Brazil by 7-1 in the semi finals en route to their cup glory. Joachim Low dealt one of the biggest pre tournament shocks by not picking Leroy Sane, despite his brilliant season for Manchester City, but still had a star studded squad.
