Thomas Müller feels comfortable at Bayern Munich and has no plans to retire from the Germany national team either.

With 128 Germany appearances under his belt, Thomas Müller is set to take part in his fourth European Championship this summer. The veteran attacking midfielder will be keen to lead Germany to Euro 2024 triumph on home soil, even though he is not expected to be a regular starter in the team.

Julian Nagelsmann hailed Müller as a vital player both on and off the pitch when announcing the squad. And the 34 year old wants to lead from the front at the Euros. He is also not considering following in Toni Kroos' footsteps and retiring from the national team.

"I'm not thinking about retiring yet, only about the tasks that lie ahead and everything that happens after that, we'll see," Müller said during Tuesday's press conference. "I always feel at home here. I've always felt super proud and happy to go and give my all for the national team. That's how I feel now too."

As far as his Bayern Munich future is concerned, Müller still has one year left on his current contract. And he is keen to play his part for the club. "I have one year left on my contract. I can't let my employer down. They're relying on me - in a certain way."

Thomas Müller has made a total of 707 appearances for Bayern Munich, scoring 242 goals and assisting a further 268. He will have the opportunity to make more history with the Bavarians this season, and will be keen to lead the club's bid to reclaim the Bundesliga title.
