Joachim Low Stays On As Germany Coach Despite World Cup Disaster

Joachim Low will stay on as Germany head coach despite the team’s disappointing outing at the ongoing FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

The world champions were surprisingly eliminated after they finished bottom of Group F behind South Korea, Mexico and Sweden.

Low, 58, became Germany’s assistant head coach in 2004 before replacing his friend and former coach Jurgen Klinsmann after the 2006 World Cup tournament on home soil.

He led Germany to both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup titles.

His present contract runs until 2022 and he must quickly rebuild the team ahead of the upcoming UEFA Nations League.

Germany will start their campaign with a home game against France in September.

The board of the German football federation (DFB) was unwavering in offering support for Joachim Low during a teleconference on Friday.

On the future of Low, DFB said: “There was no other opinion – a clear vote of confidence.”
