Joachim Low will be coaching the German national team at the European Championship this summer, the German football association DFB have confirmed. The 60-year-old’s position has been under pressure after a series of poor performances and even more pressure since the last international break following a humiliating 6-0 loss to Spain in the Nations League.
Low and the board of the DFB had several meetings over the past few weeks to evaluate the past few months and also plan for the near future as the European Championship is only seven months away. Low then met with the DFB on Monday in Frankfurt to discuss the situation and his future with the national team. They then released a statement confirming Low would remain as head coach.
“The members of the Executive Committee have agreed that what counts is the high quality work of the staff and relationship between team and coach,” read a DFB statement. “A single game cannot and must not be a yardstick for the general performance of the national team and coach. Joachim Löw continues to have the trust of the FGB.”
