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.
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.”
