The Deutsche Fussball Bund today confirmed that Joachim Löw will remain in his post until next summers European Championships. His position had come under intense scrutiny after the humiliating 6-0 defeat against Spain in the final qualifying game of the Nations League.
After a teleconference the DFB stated that it was happy with the path the national team was on under Löw and that a single game couldn’t be allowed to be the tool by which his progress was measured. The decision also had the full support of Oliver Bierhof, the Sporting Director of the team.
Both Löw and Bierhof have come in for increasing criticism since the 2018 World Cup, with German fans maintaining that it was time for both to vacate their positions and allow new incumbents to improve performances and results. The DFB has perhaps unsurprisingly thrown its weight behind the duo, though it will do nothing to increase enthusiasm for the national teams prospects next summer.
