The German national coach Joachim Löw should not fear for his job, not even when ‘die Mannschaft’ was killed in action in the group stage or eighth-finals. “We decided for the world cup to the contract of Löw until 2022 to extend, because we are convinced that no one better than him in the team after the tournament again may build up. That opinion, which we still have,” said Reinhard Grindel, president of the German football association (DFB) in the newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.
“Löw proved last year by winning both the Confederations Cup that he has a young team playing football can get,” said Grindel also. “We keep in mind. Also if it is in the group stage or eighth-finals bad ends.”
The Germans lost their first match, 1-0 to Mexico, and knocked afterwards, only at the last moment Sweden (2-1). Germany is certainly a place in the quarter-finals as Wednesday, South Korea with at least two goals difference defeat in Kazan. If not, depends the fate of ‘that Mansschaft’ of the other match in group F between Mexico and Sweden.
Löw was from 2004, as assistant to his predecessor Jürgen Klinsmann, and was after the 2006 world cup head coach. With him at the helm took Germany since then at every major tournament at least the semi-finals. Four years ago he took his team to the world title in Brazil.
