Germany national team head coach Joachim Low believes Thomas Muller is going through a difficult period, as he backs the forward to rediscover his best form.

The Bayern Munich forward has struggled to find his best form for the club as they languish in the fifth position in the German Bundesliga, this season.

However, Muller still remains part of Low’s plans and the coach insists the Golden Boot winner at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa could still play a key role and still be decisive for the German team when called upon.

“Although he hasn’t stuck out lately at the national team or his club, Thomas Muller is a player who gives a lot of energy and can lead and animate the youngsters,” Low said in a news conference, according to FourFourTwo.
