Joachim Löw has looked back at the experiences of his 15-year tenure as Germany coach.
At his last ever press conference as Germany coach on Wednesday, Joachim Löw reflected on the highs and lows of his 15-year tenure.
Speaking the day after the 2-0 loss to England at Wembley, which saw his side crash out of the Euros in the round of 16, Löw was understandably disappointed.
"The disappointment runs very, very deep. I'm sorry that we disappointed our fans and didn't spark the kind of excitement we wanted. I take responsibility for our elimination, no ifs or buts," said Löw and added:
"It's been 15 long years with a lot of wonderful moments and, of course, some disappointments.
"I've saved so many moments and images in my heart over the years. Not just the results, but the time spent together. We went through so much together, those are the moments you never forget."
The 61-year-old will now pass on the torch to his former assistant Hansi Flick, and he's confident the players are in good hands with the new coach.
"The team and the players have a bright future ahead of them. Good luck to Hansi Flick, I wish him all the best. My heart continues to beat black, red and gold," said Löw.
