January 9th Bayern striker Müller attended a press conference and talked about his future plans and the current situation of the team
Muller said that as long as he is still a professional player, he is willing to play for the German team.
My back is doing fine.
Overall, I’m in pretty good shape.
Of course, October was not a very good period for me personally, but it was good for the club because we won all the games that month.
I’m just doing what I can to get fit and help the team.
competition for position
We have seven or eight players fighting for four spots, but there will always be players out with rest or injuries, so we need everyone.
The team has been doing a great job so far, it’s functioning well without me on the pitch and hopefully it will be the same when I’m there.
Germany out of World Cup group
Of course you have to deal with criticism and we are trying to deal with the current situation.
We were very hurt by being out of the World Cup and players from other countries suffered from disappointment.
At the end of the day, that’s football, and 31 teams in a 32-team tournament won’t finish.
Even though I won a lot of games, I often left the field as a loser.
You have to convert frustration and pain into positive energy.
We still have to play, so we have to look forward.
Emotions after World Cup defeat
These top players we have at Bayern have to deal with the pressure and I don’t think we need to look after anyone in particular.
Personally, I still enjoyed watching some of the World Cup games after I was out and my wife was always able to get my emotions back on track.
Will he retire from the national team?
I was very emotional after the World Cup, it was a sad moment.
I thought about it and exchanged ideas with Frick.
As long as I am still a professional player, I am willing to always play for the national team.
When, if and how to use me is up to the coach, our aim is to be successful again and Flick has many options in attack.
I’m relaxed, but when the coach needs me, I’m absolutely there.
Is Euro 2024 your goal?
My relationship with Frick is very good, but that didn’t affect my decision.
As long as I am a professional player, I am willing to play for the national team.
We have a good team and big goals, and my goal is to come out and enjoy the game.
I feel good playing in the middle.
This is also a position where I can play to my strengths – in the middle half or in the penalty area.
The center forward I played before the injury, it was an option.
I will probably play as a centre-forward or as a number 10, it’s up to the manager and depending on my performance.
Looking ahead to the second half of the season
We will play better in the second half of the season than last year, the coach knows us better and we know the coach better.
We have improved and we know what the coach wants.
The signs of the team’s development are very good, and the game against Paris will be crucial.
Upamecano was also great last year, albeit with a few mistakes.
He loves football and never gives up.
I’m happy that he took his chance, he had a great run before and at the World Cup and I hope he can keep that going.
Main goalkeeper Neuer reimbursed for the season due to injury
Ulreich can handle this and we can always count on him.
What happened to Neuer is of course a disaster and the club is facing a challenge.
The winter transfer period is not suitable for seeking low-priced transfer deals.
It won’t be easy, but the club will get it done.
The club will make a decision and we are ready for it.
We went very far in the Champions League with Ulreich a few years ago and from that point of view everything was fine.
