Manuel Neuer has insisted that the Germany squad have accepted Mesut Ozil's decision to retire from international football.
The 29-year-old will leave a big hole in Joachim Low's national squad, but Neuer insists that his teammates must move on from his departure.
"It's the decision of the player," Neuer told reporters.
"When another player is saying that he wants to [retire] it's his own decision. You have to search for the reasons on your own then and in that case, he has found them.
"We're accepting this decision of course. In the past other players had quit their career at the national team too after a tournament like the European Championship or the World Cup."body check tags ::
