It only took five days for Joachim Low to decide to continue as Germany's head coach. After the reigning world champions' disastrous group stage exit at the 2018 World Cup, the 58-year-old had said he had to think about his future.
According to several media reports, Low has now informed the German Football Association (DFB) that he is prepared to face the new challenges and fulfill his contract that runs to 2022.
After Germany finished bottom of Group F to be eliminated in the World Cup group stage for the first time in its history, Low shut himself away at his home in Freiburg near the Swiss border. The country's fans and media were all eagerly awaiting his decision.
Photos appeared of the coach sitting in cafes and driving around the Black Forest in his classic black Mercedes convertible.
Low's decision may be good news for the DFB, with no suitable successor in sight. Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), Thomas Tuchel (Paris St. Germain), Ralf Rangnick (RB Leipzig), former Borussia Dortmund coach and Bayern Munich sporting director Matthias Sammer, and former Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes were all unavailable.
