Joachim Low stepping down

61-year-old Joachim Low has been managing Germany for 15 years.

The gaffer was assistant at the national side from 2004 and took over the main job in 2006.

In his time as Germany boss he’s won the World Cup in 2014 and the Confederations Cup in 2017.

Low also led Germany to a third place finish in the 2010 World Cup and they were runners in up in the 2008 Euros.

This week the coach announced that he’ll be leaving the job after this summer’s Euros.

Jürgen Klopp on Germany job

It is no secret that many see Jürgen Klopp as the natural successor to Joachim Low.

Jürgen Klopp has been linked with the Germany job for years.

Given that the post is set to become available the question was inevitably asked of the Reds boss in a pre-match press conference.

Klopp was emphatic in denying any speculation, telling reporters:

“Am I available for the coach of the German national team in the summer? No.

“I will not be available as a potential coach for the German team. I have three years left at LFC don’t I? It’s simple. You sign a contract and you stick to that contract.”

What RTK has to say

Praise the lord.

Low is leaving the Germany job at the perfect time for us.

If he’d left the post in a year’s time or in two year’s time then Klopp may have been more tempted.

However, given the struggles we’ve faced this season, the boss isn’t about to walk away from the job.

If Low’s successor is successful we may even be able to convince Klopp to extend his stay at Anfield.
