FORMER Germany captain Michael Ballack and coach Joachim Loew have ended their long feud with Loew accepting an invitation to attend the retired player’s farewell game in June.

Loew said yesterday he had finally spoken to Ballack.

“We talked on the phone yesterday and he invited me,” Loew said. “We said we will drink a coffee together.”

Ballack accused Loew of lying in a bitter war of words over an injury just before the 2010 World Cup and his subsequent loss of the skipper’s armband. Loew never picked him again.
