Germany coach Joachim Low signs contract extension to 2022

Germany head coach Joachim Low has signed a contract extension to keep him in charge until 2022, German Football Association President Reinhard Grindel confirmed on Tuesday.

Low, whose current contract runs out in 2020, has been in charge for 12 years and led Germany to the World Cup title in 2014.

He has committed his future to his nation for another four years in a deal which could see him manage at the World Cup in Qatar.

The 58-year-old was appointed by the national team in 2006 and led Germany to World Cup glory in Brazil four years ago, a 7-1 demolition of the hosts in the semi-final the highlight.

Assistant coach Thomas Schneider and goalkeeper coach Andreas Kopke have also extended their contracts with Germany for a further two years, the DFB confirmed on Tuesday.

Low said: “Working together with Andy Kopke, Thomas Schneider, Marcus Sorg, Oliver Bierhoff and our entire team behind the team with the best players in Germany, to develop them and make them even better, to form a team going for the highest goals that are in football – that drives me and still gives me huge joy.

“These days, I feel a great desire for the upcoming World Cup in Russia and the intense weeks with the team. I would like to thank president Reinhard Grindel, secretary general Friedrich Curtius and the entire DFB for their support and trust in us and our work.”
