Kuranyi not expecting a recall

Kevin Kuranyi does not expect to play for Germany again under Joachim Low.

Low told Bild that he would "prefer players who fit in better with his system'' and that "Kevin thrives on the long balls'', which is not his preferred style of play.

But Kuranyi, who now plays for Dinamo Moscow and has scored five goals in seven games, has reacted with amazement to Low's remarks.

"I don't understand it,'' he said. "When you look at my career, you can see that I have played successfully in different systems and have always scored goals.''

The 28-year-old has therefore given up hope of ever being considered by Low again, despite the national team coach's change of heart before the summer when he said that he was still monitoring Kuranyi as a potential candidate.

"I don't think that I will be called up by Low again,'' added Kuranyi in Bild. "Otherwise, he would have done it a long time ago. It is no longer realistic.''

Kuranyi was suspended from the national team in October 2008 by Low, who vowed never to pick him again after he left the stadium without permission during the interval of Germany's World Cup qualifier against Russia.
