Joachim Low will step down as Germany coach after Euro 2020

Germany head coach Joachim Low will finally leave his managing position at the Germany National team after Euro 2020 (played in 2021) where he free-mindedly requested to terminate his deal prematurely, the German FA has revealed.

Joachim Low, who is currently 61 years of age succeeded Jurgen Klinsmann back in August 2006 where he led Die Mannschaft to World Cup glory in Brazil 2014. They are also known when they memorably embarrassed the 2014 world cup hosts country Brazil by 7-1 in the semi-finals of the FIFA world cup competition.

Germany were also Champions at the 2017 confederation cup defeating Chile in the final. They were also guided brilliantly as they marked the semi-finals of Euro 2016, overpowered by the hosts nation France. Their woes started when they were on course to defend their FIFA world cup title in Russia 2018 but then endured a premature knockout at the group phase of the most honoured football competition FIFA world cup; for your information, that exit from the group stage in the world cup was their first ever. On the inaugural and first organized UEFA Nations League, Germany performed badly and that attitude of underperforming is still a dust they have tried to shrug off their feets even in the world cup and euro qualifiers.

Joachim Low was among the coaching crew to former Germany coach Klinsmann and also his next in command (assistant) in the span of two (2) years (from 2004-2006). He replaced Klinsmann where he signed a deal that will keep him until the 2022 World Cup but met the German FA (DFB) to ask for a premature step down, which will take effect at the end of the postponed Euro 2020 competition.

Germany are currently in Group F at the summers Euro competition where they will play against top footballing countries like France, Portugal and Hungary (considered as group of death) with the venue scheduled to hold at the Allianz Arena in Munich.

Joachim Low has see reasons to improve his CV by winning the competition before leaving the role at the end of the competition.

Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp who is currently struggling with The Reds was rumoured to be named as an ideal candidate for the job if Low leaves, but at the end of last year, he mentioned that he won’t be available for the position at the moment till he sees what “the future” holds for him. RB Leipzig boss Julian Nagelsmann was also a target for the role but he vehemently ruled himself out of the coaching gig.
