Chelsea star Michael Ballack flew from London to Frankfurt, Germany, on Thursday to apologise directly to Joachim Loew for comments he made last week criticising the national coach.

Germany captain Ballack criticised Loew last Tuesday in a newspaper interview here saying the coach should show his senior players more loyalty and respect after veteran midfielder Torsten Frings was dropped.

Ballack, 32, apologised last weekend in a press release, but Loew insisted the Chelsea midfielder fly to the German Football Federation (DFB) offices in Frankfurt to meet face-to-face on Thursday and explain his comments.

Ballack returned to London immediately after the meeting and the DFB are expected to make an announcement on Friday to reveal whether Ballack will keep his role as captain of die Mannschaft or even his place in the team.

Munich newspaper Abendzeitung claimed on Thursday that Ballack is set to resign as Germany captain, but remain in the team with Bayern Munich defender Philipp Lahm taking over as captain.
