Joachim Löw to leave Germany role after UEFA Euro 2020

Joachim Löw will leave his role as Germany head coach after the upcoming UEFA Euro 2020 championship, the DFB have confirmed.

Löw, who led Germany to FIFA World Cup glory in 2014 as well as the FIFA Confederations Cup title in 2017, steered Die Mannschaft to this summer's showpiece as Group C winners with seven wins out of eight.

It was a statement qualification campaign following Germany's early exit from the 2018 World Cup, and Löw has every intention of bowing out on a high.

"I take this step very consciously, full of pride and enormous gratitude, but at the same time continue to be very motivated when it comes to the upcoming European Championship tournament," he said.

"I'm proud, because it's something very special and an honour for me to be involved with my country. And because I have been able to work with the best footballers in the country for almost 17 years and support them in their development. I've had great triumphs with them as well as painful defeats, but above all many wonderful and magical moments - not just winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Löw will first oversee Germany's World Cup qualifiers against Iceland, Romania and North Macedonia in March - during which time Bayern Munich youngster Jamal Musiala is expected to be given his debut - before Germany open their Euro 2020 campaign against France in Munich.
