Kampl, 28, was born and raised in Germany after his parents moved from Maribor in northeastern Slovenia.
"Now that I've retired from the national team, that's an issue. I was born and raised here. I would also like to live here later. I feel like a German," he said in an interview with Bild.
"When I was born, I could have had dual citizenship. But we didn't thematize it back then," Kampl explained.
Kampl made 28 appearances for Slovenia, scoring two goals.
