Hoeness believes the national side has struggled in the past due to the squad being allowed too much freedom and has called on Low to adopt a more disciplinarian approach in their current World Cup qualifying campaign.
"[In the past there has been] too much talk about to which Formula One race they want to visit to keep the players happy," Hoeness told Spiegel.
"In the preparation everybody was discussing which ping-pong table was to be brought where, preferably on top of Mont Blanc. Sometimes less is more!
“Many players won't be treated as soft if they screw up [in the future] I'm sure Jogi Low has realised that already."
Germany play Ireland and Sweden on October 12 and 16 respectively.
