After several days of negotiations, the Germany Football Federation reached a final decision about Joachim Low’s future as a manager.
Joachim Low’s future as the Germany manager has been hanging from a thread for the last few weeks after that painful defeat vs Spain. A 6-0 loss that was historic, it never happened to Germany in the past. But Joachim Low’s future in Germany has been debated over the last two years since they got eliminated from the FIFA World Cup.
Many believe his spell with the national team has been over for a while. However, Low himself thinks he still has a lot to offer as he showed his plans to the federation. In his view, the manager has been taking the necessary steps towards a better future for the national team.
Getting eliminated in the UEFA Europa League is the damage he was expecting. In his many meetings with the federation over the last couple of weeks, Low showed everybody his work and the progress he’s made in regards to the team.
The German Football Federation’s final call.
During this Monday’s meeting, Joachim Low made one final attempt to keep his job and he succeeded. The German Football Federation made a statement in which they confirm Joachim Low will remain as the manager until the 2022 World Cup in order to keep the process going. This decision won’t come as great news for the many who believed it was time for Low to leave his position.
“A single game cannot and must not be a yardstick for the general performance of the national team and the national coach,” wrote the German FA in an official statement.
“There is a firm conviction that Joachim Löw and his coaching team will deliver successful games and results despite a challenging situation for everyone. The coach will take all the necessary steps for an exciting 2021 European Championship.
“We agree with the coach’s assessment that the following tournaments must already play a role in perspectives and sporting goals – namely the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and the 2024 European Championship in our own country.”
