Germany coach Loew set to stay on after Brazil

17 October 2013, 17:22

Berlin - An extension to Germany coach Joachim Loew's contract is expected to be confirmed on Friday, according to the German football federation (DFB).

Loew's existing deal runs until the 2014 World Cup but both the manager and DFB president Wolfgang Niersbach have made it clear they want the arrangement to continue after Brazil.

Under Loew Germany made it through to the final of Euro 2008, where they lost 1-0 to Spain, third place at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, and the semi-finals at Euro 2012.

And Germany have sailed through qualification for next year's World Cup unbeaten in their group, culminating in Tuesday's 5-3 win over Sweden.

Since Loew took over from Jurgen Klinsmann after their third place in the 2006 World Cup on home soil Germany's record stands at 68 wins from 99 matches.

Loew's contract is one of the topics up for discussion at a conference Friday in Frankfurt, at which the coach is due to attend.

After Tuesday's final World Cup qualifier Loew when asked about his situation said: "I still have to talk to Wolfgang Niersbach... but I'm confident we will reach an agreement."
