Müller watched Munich’s last Bundesliga home game before the World Cup again as a spectator from the stands of the Allianz Arena due to muscular problems.

The offensive player will have to start the tournament in Qatar without another competitive game. Bayern coach Julian Nagelsmann announced on Monday that he was also planning the last Munich game of the year on Saturday at FC Schalke 04 without the 2014 world champion. “The chance of an injury is already there if he gets in too early,” said Nagelsmann as justification. Since you otherwise have all the players fit on the offensive, you don’t need to take any risks. “I think that’s also in his interest,” said Nagelsmann after a conversation with Müller.

“I would just like to give him the peace and quiet before the World Cup to let the structure heal completely,” explained the Bayern coach. National coach Hansi Flick will announce his World Cup squad this Thursday (12 p.m.) in Frankfurt. Müller is considered to be among the maximum of 26 players. The 118-time national player (44 goals) definitely wants to play his fourth World Cup tournament.

He was recently stopped by problems in his back, hips and adductors. In the 3-0 win in the Champions League against FC Barcelona at the end of October, Müller was last used as a substitute. He himself spoke of a “stop-and-go mode” that was unusual for him. He has been sidelined again since the attempt in Barcelona. The only test before the first World Cup group game against Japan (November 23) is Müller’s international match against Oman next Wednesday in Muscat. On November 17, the DFB team will move into the World Cup quarters in Qatar.
