Germany coach Joachim Löw has signed a two-year contract extension with the German Football Federation (DFB), that will see him remain at the helm to oversee Die Mannshaft‘s Euro 2012 campaign.
Löw’s previous deal expired at the final whistle of Germany’s World Cup third-place play off against Uruguay but now he (along with assistant coach Hans-Dieter Flick, team manager Oliver Bierhoff and goalkeeping coach Andreas Kopke) has been handed a fresh set of terms in reward for his total rejuvenation of the German style of play.
Löw posted a short statement on the DFB website confirming the news;
“We are all pleased that we can continue our work with the national team for a further two years.
Thanks to the excellent work the Bundesliga clubs do with young players and to the youth teams of the DFB, we are convinced that the national team can further enhance their international standing through modern and attractive football.”
