BERLIN: The top five executives of the German Football Association (DFB) met with Joachim Loew in Frankfurt today to discuss the future of the country’s national team coach, local media reported.
“Discussions about Loew’s future have begun,” Bild wrote.
The German football team is in crisis following the embarrassing 0-6 defeat to Spain on November 17 in addition to being tied twice against Switzerland and Turkey.
In addition to Loew, the discussion was also attended by national team director Oliver Bierhoff with DFB President Fritz Keller; two vice presidents and treasurer.
“The question of whether Loew will complete his contract until 2022 and resume his duties despite the defeat to Spain, will be decided in the next few hours,” Bild said.
A total of 14 members of the DFB presidential council are scheduled to hold a meeting this Friday to decide Loew’s fate.
The coach was not invited to the meeting, but Bierhoff, who has been close to him for the past few years, will explain the cause of the defeat to Spain and plans are in place to address the current problems until Euro 2020 in June next year.
