Germany coach to stay until 2020

Despite his dismal performance at the 2018 World Cup in Russia, Joachim Low has been given a new contract as the Germany national soccer team head coach.

Low signed a four-year-extension to his contract which means that he will be in charge of Germany’s campaign for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.

Low replaced Jürgen Klinsmann in July 2006 and this makes him one of the longest serving national team coaches in the world.

After Germany came last in group G after 2-0 loss to South Korea, many thought Low was resigning the next hour but instead he signed contract extension to 2022 days after landing in Germany from World cup in Russia.

Germany failed to progress to the next round for the first time since 1938 and now Low’s first task will be to help Germany qualify for the 2020 European championships, a tournament expected to be hosted by 12 countries.
