GERMANY - Low has ruled out any return for Mesut Ozil

Published on: 06 September 2018

Joachim Low has ruled out any return for Mesut Ozil to the Germany squad after the Arsenal midfielder's retirement.

"I think everything has been said about this. When a player announces his resignation like that, you don't pick him for the squad eight or nine weeks later," said Low. "Players who have resigned will not have a role to play in future. He's said he doesn't want to play, he told us his thoughts, I don't know why we should keep talking about it."
