The Manager of Germany’s senior football team Joachim Low, is set to step down from the position after the completion of the European Champions this summer.
The German who is currently aged 61, has managed his country’s national football team since he took over from Jurgen Klinsman in 2006.
Low officialy has a contract which keeps him as the Manager of the German team until after the 2022 World Cup, but he approached the German Football Association (DFB) to end his contract before it’s official expiration date.
While explaining his decision to step down, Low said “I take this step very consciously, full of pride and enormous gratitude, I am proud because it is an honour for me to be involved and because I have been able to work with the best footballers in the country and support them in their development.”
“I have great triumphs with them and painful defeats, but above all many wonderful and magical moments – not just winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.”
“I am and will remain grateful to the DFB, which has always provided me and the team with an ideal working environment.”
The president of the DFBbFritz Keller, who spoke on Low’s early resignation said “The fact that he informed us about his decision at an early stage is very decent, he gives us the necessary time to name his successor.”
