Both Bild and SPORT1’s Florian Plettenberg have reported that Joachim Löw will remain Germany’s head coach, despite the fact that Germany suffered its biggest loss since 1931 in yesterday’s 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Spain.

Update re: Löw: According to our information, all signs indicate that the national coach will continue. Dismissal is out of the question. Bierhoff (has a right of nomination for the presidential committee) and Keller (committee chair) are pro Löw.

Meeting at the airport in Munich, Joachim Löw conferred with DFB President Fritz Keller, national team director Oliver Bierhoff, and assistant coach Marcus Sorg to discuss yesterday’s game and the overall future. The meeting lasted 30 minutes and resulted in the agreement that Jogi Löw will not resign from the national team.

According to Bild’s report, the men view the debacle against Spain as a one-off ‘’blackout’’ and not a symptomatic of total failure. It thus appears that Löw will receive yet another chance to redeem himself in March 2021.

The DFB will apparently issue a press release concerning Jogi Löw later today.
