Joachim Low to remain Germany boss for Euros in 2021

Following a critical meeting, the German Football Association have decided to stick with current Germany manager Joachim Low for the Euros in 2021. After a 6-0 humiliation to Spain on November 17, the German manager’s job was under heavy scrutiny. Despite the defeat, Low showed keen interest in taking the team forward in a meeting with the German FA.

The German FA released a statement regarding Low’s managerial situation that read, “A single game cannot and must not be a yardstick for the general performance of the national team and the national coach,”


Low was quick to receive the backing of national team director Oliver Bierhoff after the defeat and also a vote of confidence the following day from German FA president Fritz Keller.

The statement further claimed, “Low informed those involved about his assessments, ideas and further plans. The members of the executive committee agreed that what counts is the high-quality work of the coaching staff, intact relationship between the team and the coach and a clear concept for the previous and future procedures,”

“There is a firm conviction that Joachim Low and his coaching team will deliver successful games and results despite a challenging situation for everyone,”

Joachim Low has managed the German National team since 2006 and his current contract runs out after the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
