Germany boss Joachim Löw has announced he will step down from his role after this summer’s European Championship.
The 61-year-old has been involved with the national team since 2004, first as an assistant for two years and then taking over as coach after the 2006 World Cup.
He led Die Mannschaft to World Cup glory in Brazil in 2014 and was also a beaten finalist at Euro 2008 but will now stand aside.
“I take this step very consciously, full of pride and enormous gratitude but I’ll still have the same great motivation for the European Championship this summer,” Löw said via a statement.
“I’m proud because it’s been very special and an honour for me to be involved with my country.
“I’ve worked with some of Germany’s best players for 17 years. We’ve had great triumphs and painful defeats but above all, there have been so many magical moments – not just winning the World Cup.
“We’ll do our best to make our fans happy this summer and be successful at our final tournament.”
Löw bows out as the second longest-serving Germany coach after Sepp Herberger.
