Joachim Löw extends contract with Germany by two years until 2020

Joachim Löw has signed a contract to manage Germany until after Euro 2020. The 56-year-old has agreed an early two-year extension, meaning he will be in charge for the next two championships. Low succeeded Jürgen Klinsmann in 2006 and led them to World Cup glory in 2014.

The German Football Association (DFB) announced on Monday that the 56-year-old had agreed an early two-year extension to his contract, meaning he will be in charge of the national team for the next two major championships.

Low succeeded Jurgen Klinsmann as Germany boss in 2006 and led them to World Cup glory in 2014.

In Löw’s five major tournaments at the helm, Germany have always made it at least to the semi-finals. They were beaten finalists at Euro 2008.

No Germany coach has ever been in charge for seven major tournaments.
