Michael Ballack has apologised to Joachim Low for his recent criticism of the Germany boss.
Ballack declared in a German newspaper last week that Low had shown a lack of respect to senior players in the Germany squad.
The midfielder also hit out at Low's decision not to include Torsten Frings in his starting XIs for the recent World Cup qualifying wins over Russia and Wales.
Low demanded to meet with Ballack but Chelsea refused to allow him to travel as he is currently recovering from foot surgery.
Ballack has now admitted that he made a mistake and vowed to say sorry in person as soon as possible.
"I must acknowledge it was unfortunately an error to chose this way (to communicate)," Ballack said in a statement.
"I will meet with Joachim Low as soon as my health allows and I will apologise to him for my behaviour.
Low has made it clear that Ballack's future role within the Germany team will depend on the outcome of their discussions.
"I have registered the explanation of Michael Ballack," Low said on the German Football Federation's official website.
"The personal discussion is much more important. Afterwards, I will give a concluding statement."
