- Jogi Low will stay on as the German national team manager despite Die Mannschaft’s humiliation a the 2018 World Cup
- Jogi Low has been slammed for errors at the World Cup
Germany are set to maintain Joachim Low as coach of the national team despite the country’s shambolic performance at the 2018 World Cup.
The holders endured a frustrating outing in Russia, managing just a single win in three group games in the tournament.
Paired in the same group with Mexico, Sweden and South Korea, Die Manschaft had a good draw in Russia.
However, the side ended up finishing bottom of Group G after losses to Mexico and South Korea, with their only win coming against Sweden.
Low has come under intense pressure following Germany’s early exit from the World Cup, with certain quarters suggesting he could be axed from his post.
But the 58-year-old is set to stay on as Germany coach, as he intends to see out his 2022 contract which he signed only last month.
"I feel, in spite of the legitimate criticism of our departure, generally much support and encouragement,” Low is quoted as saying by the BBC.
"But now I want to design the rebuilding with full commitment. It all takes time, but everything will happen in time for the start of the new international season in September,” he added.
Low was appointed Germany boss in 2006 after serving as Jurgen Klinsmann’s assistant in the 2006 World Cup.
He has since guided the European nation to at least a semi-final finish in every tournament – winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil – until their early exit in Russia.
