Despite Germany’s shocking World Cup exit, finishing last in their group despite having won the Cup four years ago, Joachim Low will keep his job and remain as the team’s head coach.
Germany lost 2-0 to South Korea last week and failed to reach the knockout stage for the first time since 1938. After the stunning defeat there was much talk about Low’s future with the team.
“I feel, in spite of the legitimate criticism of our departure, generally much support and encouragement,” Low said, according to BBC Sport.
“But now I want to design the rebuilding with full commitment,” he added. “It all takes time, but everything will happen in time for the start of the new international season in September.”
Before winning the World Cup under Low in 2014, Germany finished third in 2010, was the runner-up at the 2008 Euros, and reached the semi-finals of the 2012 and 2016 continental tournaments.
