Kiessling: I won't play under Low

Stefan Kiessling has ruled out a return to the Germany team as long as Joachim Low is in charge.

Kiessling has scored more goals than any other German in the Bundesliga this term
Kiessling has not played for the national team since 2010.

The Bayer Leverkusen striker, 29, told Bild: “There will be no more Germany international Stefan Kiessling under Low.”

Low watched as Kiessling was on target from the penalty spot in Leverkusen’s 4-2 victory over Borussia Monchengladbach -- his 100th goal for the club.

Kiessling played the last of his Germany games in the third place play-off against Uruguay in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.

“Every goal is followed by questions about my DFB [international] comeback. It just annoys me. No longer,” he said.

And in a longer post on his Facebook page, he wrote: “I want to take away the pressure [and make sure] that this issue is not brought up time and time again. I can now fully concentrate on Bayer.

“For three years now, there has not been any contact or any info on why I am not good enough for the national team. I am not the guy to cause a stir, but I want to finally bring this issue to an end.”
