Joachim Low, the German national team manager will step down from his post this summer after the European Championship, an official statement reads early Tuesday morning, bringing to an end a rich reign that could still end on a high.
Low first joined the team in 2004 as an assistant to Jurgen Klinsmann before taking over in 2006 and led them to the Euro 2008 final before winning the World Cup six years later.
Doubts over Low's future grew following a 6-0 defeat to Spain in the UEFA Nations League in November. They had begun following Germany's failure to recover from the 2018 World Cup exit at the group stages, a first for Low and his staff.
Asked about Klopp's chance of replacing Low, RB Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann told a news conference on Tuesday: "Klopp is, of course, an exceptional coach but I think Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp are content with their partnership, so I don't know if that's a good question for me. You should ask that to Jurgen."
UEFA confirmed last month the tournament would go ahead although doubts remain about which countries will host it.
