Joachim Löw will remain Germany coach for next year's European Championship, the German Football Association (DFB) has confirmed.


After a teleconference on Monday, the DFB Executive Committee has unanimously agreed to keep faith in Löw, who is still under contract until 2022.

Löw's future has been in limbo in the wake of Germany's embarrassing 6-0 defeat to Spain in the UEFA Nations League earlier this month.

The 60-year-old was subsequently asked to "fundamentally review the current situation of the national team", and he presented his analysis to the DFB presidium on Monday together with Germany general manager Bierhoff, who backed the 60-year-old to keep his job.

Löw was appointed Germany coach in 2006 and led 'Die Mannschaft' to the World Cup title in 2014.

The 60-year-old has faced heavy criticism in recent years, particularly following Germany's dismal World Cup campaign in 2018 that saw them crash out at the group stages.
