Russian Federation 2018: Joachim Low extends contract with Germany

Germany manager Joachim Low has agreed to extend his contract with the world champions until 2022.

The 58-year-old has now penned a new deal heading into this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation, extending his stay until 2022.

Ahead of the announcement of the provisional 2018 World Cup squad, the DFB confirmed the contract extension of head coach Joachim Loew, who has put pen to paper on a deal that will last until June 2022.

Loew took over after the 2006 World Cup in Germany and has led his country to at least the semi-finals in all of the five major tournaments for which he has been at the helm.

His previous contract was due to expire following the 2020 European Championship. "I have always said that Jogi Low is the best coach for the national team".

Oliver Bierhoff, the national team general manager, is also extending his deal, to 2024, along with assistant Marcus Sorg.

Managing director of the DFB Oliver Bierhoff, a former Germany worldwide, has also extended his contract through to 2024.

"I feel with him the unbroken will to remain with the national team and to keep us on top for the next few years".

"For me it is important to continue the process that has begun with the academy and the national teams in a consistent and long-term way".

"We want to thank you for the trust placed in us, which is also an obligation to establish ourselves amongst the best in the world", said Loew directly to Grindel.
