Joachim Low - Germany

German boss insists position Low is not under pressure: ‘Not at all’

Germany head coach Joachim Low is not in danger of losing his position as national coach, says DFB director Olivier Bierhoff. The 2014 World Cup winners were trashed 6-0 by Spain on Tuesday in the final match of the Nations League in Sevilla. Manchester City winger Ferran Torres scored his first-ever hat-trick for the national team. After the game Bierhoff was asked about the future of Low.

The former German international was quick to deny rumours that the 6-0 beating could be the end of Low at the national team. Asked if he will be leading the team at the European Championship, Bierhoff said: “Absolutely, yes. This game changes nothing. We still trust Joachim Low, no doubt about that. When it comes to the national team’s coach, you have to think and analyze from tournament to tournament. We want to achieve the maximum at next year’s Euros.”

“We have to digest this defeat first, it will take some time. Everything went wrong. We lost the ball easily and the team fell apart, that shouldn’t happen. We didn’t go into the tackles or keep possession. We have to learn from it and draw good conclusions.” In the German media Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick has been put forward as a short-term replacement for Low should the DFB decide to sack him.
