Joachim Löw to remain as Germany head coach

The Deutscher Fußball-Bund (DFB) have today confirmed that Joachim Löw will remain as head coach for the European championship next year.

Members of the Presidential committee reached the agreement on Monday morning which came after discussions following Germany’s 6-0 defeat against Spain in November.

“The member of the Executive Committee have agreed that what counts in the high quality work of the staff and relationship between team and coach,” read a statement on the DFB website.

“On the way to Euro 2021, important sporting goals have already being achieved – including qualification, staying in League A of the Nations League and positioning ourselves in Pot A in the World Cup qualification. A single game cannot and must not be a yardstick for the general performance of the national team and coach. Joachim Löw continues to have the trust of the DFB.”

The 60-year-old was appointed Germany head coach in 2006 as the successor to Jürgen Klinsmann. Löw has gone on to win the 2014 World Cup as well as finishing runners-up at Euro 2008.
