German coach Loew agrees contract extension to 2022

Reinhard Grindel, the president of the DFB, confirmed the news at the announcement of Germany's World Cup squad for the Russian Federation 2018 finals and also revealed Oliver Bierhoff, the national team's director, has extended until 2024.

Germany head coach Joachim Low has extended his contract until 2022.

Low, whose previous deal was due to expire in 2020, has been in charge for 12 years and led Germany to the World Cup title in 2014.

The 2014 World Cup victor had been linked with several high profile roles, including the vacant Arsenal post.

Low joined the national team set-up as assistant to Jurgen Klinsmann in 2004 and helped the team reach the semi-finals of the World Cup two years later.

Low's entire backroom staff have also agreed new deals, as has national team managing director Oliver Bierhoff.

"I personally enjoy working with so many inspiring people".

"To work with the best players in Germany, then develop them and to make them better, to form a team that sets the highest goals, this is what drives and still gives me joy".

"For me it is important to continue the process that has begun with the academy and the national teams in a consistent and long-term way".

"Also outside the pitch he stands for values such as fair play and tolerance and is therefore an excellent worldwide representative for Germany and for the DFB".
