Joachim Low will remain as manager of Germany, the country’s National Team Director Oliver Bierhoff has said despite their 6-0 thumping against Spain on Tuesday evening.
Die Mannschaft only needed a draw to progress to the UEFA Nations League finals but instead fell to their worst competitive defeat since 1931 as Ferran Torres netted a hat-trick, with Alvaro Morata, Rodri and Mikel Oyarzabal also getting on the scoresheet.
The defeat signals an ever-worsening decline for the German national side having failed to progress from the group at the 2018 World Cup and only managing to win three out of their last eight international matches.
Despite the pressure increasing on current manager Low, who has been in charge since 2006, Bierhoff insists that the World Cup winner is remaining in his job until at least the European Championships next summer.
Talking to ARD TV, he said: “This game changes nothing. We still trust Joachim Löw, no doubt about that. With the national team, you have to think and analyse from tournament to tournament. We want to achieve the maximum at next year’s Euros.”
Germany are still one of the favourites to win Euro 2020 under Low and can be backed at a price of 15/2 with Betfair to do just that.
