GERMANY manager Joachim Low has opened the door to Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels returning to the national team.
Speaking to Kicker, he said: “Special circumstances can justify an interruption in the upheaval.
“That (the future of the trio) will be a difficult and important question, also for me.
“The character of Thomas Muller and Mats Hummels is that they don’t oppress others.”
But the centre-back was not mentioned by the German boss as his international career continues to look uncertain.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich teenager Jamal Musiala could be set to receive his first call-up to the national side after choosing Germany over England.
