The 61-year-old will call time on his 15-year spell in charge following the national team's latest appearance in a major tournament in the summer

Joachim Low will vacate his role as head coach of the Germany national team after the Euro 2020 tournament in the summer.

The 61-year-old, who guided the national team to World Cup glory in 2014, had been under immense pressure following Germany's dismal performance at Russia 2018 although he kept his job and had been expected to continue until 2022.

He will not see his contract through, however, with the German football association (DFB) having agreed that he will leave his post at the end of this summer's European Championship.

A statement on the official DFB website confirmed Low will step down from his position. It read: "Joachim Low will end his job as national coach after the European Championship in summer 2021. 

"The national team coach asked to end his contract, which originally ran until the 2022 World Cup, immediately upon completion of the European Championship tournament. The DFB agreed to this."

Low expressed his gratitude to the DFB after the announcement was made, while also discussing the immense pride he has felt during his role as Germany head coach over the past 15 years, having spent two years as Jurgen Klinsmann's assistant prior to taking the top job.

"I take this step very consciously, full of pride and enormous gratitude, but at the same time continue to be very motivated when it comes to the upcoming European Championship tournament," he said.
