Bayern München centre-back Jerome Boateng has backed the decision by the German Football Association (DFB) to hold on to Joachim Löw as Germany coach.

Following a conference call on Monday, it was announced that the DFB presidium has unanimously agreed to keep faith in Löw.

Löw has faced heavy criticism since Germany's dismal World Cup in 2018, which saw them crash out at the group stages, and his future was thrown into doubt when Germany lost 6-0 to Spain last month, suffering their worst ever competitive defeat.

Jerome Boateng has played 76 games for Germany under Löw, but hasn't represented his country since March 2019, at which point he was axed from the team along with Thomas Müller and Mats Hummels.

Even so, the 32-year-old believes the German Football Association has made the right call in keeping Löw at the helm.

"I think it's the right decision. I'm convinced that 'Jogi' and his team will do well at the European Championship," Boateng told Bild.
