Confirmed: Germany Stick With Low
Confirmed: Germany Stick With Joachim Low
The Germany Football Association (DFB) has announced that manager Joachim Low will continue working with the national team, despite failing to make it out of the group stage of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
Following their exit from the competition, there were rumours that the 58-year-old would be relieved of his duties, despite signing a new four-year deal only weeks before the tournament.
However, DFB president Reinhard Grindel remains in full support of Low and his coaching staff.
"We had a very open and trusting exchange, in which we addressed many points," the president said, according to the DFB's official website.
"We are all firmly convinced that with Jogi Low, we have a national coach who will analyse very carefully, take the right steps and lead our team back on the road to success.
"It would be premature, however, to demand a comprehensive analysis just days after such a tournament.
"The national coach and Oliver Bierhoff should now take the necessary time to work up the tournament athletically and present to the bureau before the match on 6 September against France, in which we are equal in the League of Nations equal demand, to present a comprehensive analysis."
