Germany manager Joachim Löw isn’t going anywhere just yet. In fact, not only will he manage them in the 2018 World Cup, but he could be around for the 2022 adventure as well. On Tuesday, the Germany FA would announce a contract extension for Löw. And while he’s already been managing the side since 2006, this is hardly surprising.
After all, Germany are coming off a 2014 World Cup title (their first since 1990), not to mention the Confederations Cup crown in 2017. Not only that, but under Löw this country has always seen relative success. Even if it means falling just short in the European Championships — runner-up in 2008; semi-finalists in 2012, 2016.
Meanwhile, Löw believes the additional two years are ideal. It helps so much with the planning.
“The planning horizon over four years is ideal, I’d like to think, especially because there might be some changes in the squad after the 2018 World Cup.”
And who better to see that through than Löw? In the meantime, Germany remain one of the favorites for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. But as we know, nothing comes easily on the international stage.
