"We don't want to go down that route of a boycott, that won't accomplish anything," Niersbach said in an interview.
"We don't want to get into a situation like with boxing where there are several parallel associations. That doesn't work."
Following Sepp Blatter's re-election as FIFA president last week, the English Football Association's chairman Greg Dyke said his organisation would support any boycott led by UEFA, the sport's European federation.
