The team was unexpectedly eliminated in the group stage at the World Cup in Qatar. In the recent match against Japan, despite being held at home, the team put in an uninspiring performance, conceding four goals and suffering a black star. The lack of improvement in the match led the German Football Federation (DFB) to take a decision and oust coach Hansi Flick.
He will be replaced by Julian Nagelsmann. The young tactician is expected to revive the German national team, but his contract will remain in place until EURO 2024, which will be held in his home country. After that, nothing has been decided yet, and various futures are possible.
Jurgen Klopp, another candidate to become the next coach of the German national team, has completely ruled out the idea of taking overNevertheless, German Football Federation is still keen to have him in charge, and the news will heat up after the Euros, according to Raphael Honigstein, a German journalist.
“Germany have been hoping to appoint Jurgen Klopp for many, many years.
“But the fact that the next manager’s only there for 10 months, and we know already that he’s going to leave at the end of the Euro’s, unless he changes his mind through his existing contract, then Klopp will come into contention.”
“The speculation will start now really. I’ve seen it already in a few German newspapers.”
Not long ago the German national team had a scorer, Miroslav Klose, but now there is no promising striker. The team has been going downhill, with many games not won without scoring, and coach Frick’s centripetal force has been declining.
It will be interesting to see how coach Nagelsmann, who did not do well at Bayern Munich, will fare with the German national team, which has many players who belong to the same club.
On the other hand, it cannot be denied that he still lacks experience. In addition, he seems to have struggled to organize the so-called top players, so it is natural that Klopp, who has a wealth of experience in managing big names, would be a major contender for the job.
He is under contract until 2026, and there is a possibility that he will extend his contract further. After 2026, however, who knows?
While we would love to see the coach in charge of the national team, we would also like him to continue to lead the team at Anfield…
