Metzelder not expecting finals call-up

Real Madrid defender Christoph Metzelder has ruled out a return to the Bundesliga in January after appearing to give up hope of being included in Germany's World Cup squad.

But the former Borussia Dortmund man, who is surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu, has ruled out a return to the Bundesliga in January to boost his chances of a national team recall.

The 29-year-old had been linked with a return to Germany where he could get the chance to impress Die Mannschaft coach Joachim Low.

But Metzelder fully intends to see out the last six months of his contract in Spain, even if it means spending most of the time on the bench.

"This is not a good time for a transfer,'' he said at a press conference. "I have spoken very little with Joachim Low recently and I don't think I play a very big role in his plans.''
