Low stays as Germany coach despite World Cup failure

Low will now honour his contract, according to Bild, which runs until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, where he will be tasked with making amends.

Joachim Low will continue as Germany coach, despite the country's shock exit from the 2018 World Cup.

Despite the win over their European rivals, losses to Mexico and South Korea have prompted much soul searching in Germany and led to intense speculation over the future of Low. My disappointment is still huge.

Getting Germany back on their feet, particularly if there are rifts within the squad that need healing, and transitioning to their newer generation of players will be one of the biggest challenges of Low's career, but his earlier record speaks for itself and he has earned the chance to put things right. But now I want to lead the rebuilding with full commitment, " Low said.

However, he stuck with Germany's golden generation of Thomas Muller, Mesut Ozil, Jerome Boateng and Sami Khedira, among others, at the 2018 finals in Russian Federation, where the defending champions did not make it out of their group.

"I will analyse together with my team, hold talks and draw the right conclusions at the start of the new season". "It all takes time, but everything will happen in time for the start of the new worldwide season in September".

Following that defeat, Grindel, came out in support of the coach he had handed a new four-year deal, but Low needed some time to think about his next move after calls for him to step down. It would be premature, however, to demand a comprehensive analysis just days after such a tournament.

Until now, Germany had never departed a major tournament before the semi-final stage under Low's management.
