Bild claims Germany coach Joachim Löw will only bring back Jerome Boateng, Thomas Müller and Mats Hummels if they 'clearly outperform' their younger competitors.

Bild recently claimed that Germany coach Joachim Löw is no longer categorically against bringing back Jerome Boateng, Thomas Müller and Mats Hummels to the national team following his decision to axe the trio in March 2019.


However, should Löw keep his job, he's leaning towards not recalling Boateng, Müller and Hummels for Germany's next games in March 2021, as per Bild, who claims the 60-year-old would only bring back the three experienced stars if they 'clearly outperform their competitors by the deadline in May.'

Löw's plans for Boateng, Müller and Hummels will play a part as The German Football Association (DFB) make a decision on his future this week.

The 60-year-old has been asked to 'fundamentally review the current situation of the national team' following Germany's 6-0 loss to Spain earlier this month, and his findings will be presented to the DFB presidium by general manager Oliver Bierhoff on Friday at the latest.
