German nationalist Joachim Low announced on Tuesday that he will leave office after the next Euro, ending a 17-year-old stage linked to the German team, first as an assistant to Jurgen Klismann and since 2006 as a bench leader.» I take this step very consciously, full of pride and enormous gratitude, but at the same time I am still very motivated for the next Euros. I am proud because I have worked with the best footballers in the country for almost 17 years and supported them in their development. I have great triumphs associated with them and painful defeats, but above all many wonderful and magical moments, not only winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil,» Low recalled in a statement. The technician, 61, came to the German national team as Klinsmann’s assistant in the summer of 2004 and has been a lead qualifier for almost 15 years.» I still feel great energy and ambition for the next European Championship. I will do everything I can to make our fans happy and successful in this tournament,» he promised. Low’s outstanding journey at the helm of the ‘Mannschaft’ highlights mainly the title at the World Cup in Brazil. In addition, he was also able to guide Germany to two other semi-finals at the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, as well as to the Euro 2008 final, which he lost to España.Su the biggest disappointment came at the 2018 World Cup, where the German team was eliminated in the group stage.
