Speaking at his pre-match press conference ahead of Germany’s friendly against the Netherlands on Tuesday night, head coach Hansi Flick praised Thomas Müller (32), who brings a lot of experience to the national team.
“If he performs to his potential then he’ll always play. He’s a player who brings a lot to the team both on and off the pitch and helps us in how we operate. He supports every individual on the pitch,” said Flick.
“He’s someone who not only serves the team but also helps the coaching team. We need good performances and that’s what he brings. For me, age is just a number and he will also play against the Netherlands.”
Müller has 110 caps for Germany, scoring 42 goals.
