DFB president supports Low

Wed 18 November 2020 | 17:58

Even though the German national team has suffered their biggest defeat in the last 90 years but the coach would be safe in his career position.

According to the country’s top football figure,

Joachim Low

is still the best option to lead the team in this “rocky path”.

Germany

needed one point to reach the next’s years Nation League Finals but they were defeated with

Ferran Torres

hat-trick and goals from

Alvaro Morata

,

Rodri

and

Mikel Oyarzabal

.

After the defeat against

Austria

in 1931 by the same scoreline, it was their heaviest defeat.

Low described this defeat as an “awful” defeat. Germany had just 30 percent of the possession, and

Toni Kroos

was the only player from the visitors to have more successful passes than

Spain

goalkeeper

Unai Simon

.

The president of the German Football Federation, Fritz Keller, said that there was always likely to be some difficult moments as Germany went through a transition period before Euro 2020.

"We had a black evening in Seville, which hurt us," Keller said in a statement. "The viewers at home, me, the coach, the players.

"I was in the dressing room after the final whistle and I felt everyone's extreme disappointment. But also the will to correct this feeling.

"Our young team can grow from the severe setback if this game, in which not only heart and passion were missing, is analysed carefully and the necessary conclusions are drawn. They have the potential.

"We made a conscious decision to bring about the change with many new and young players with perspective. As was seen yesterday, this path can be the more rocky one and also lead to painful defeats.

"But even if we all wished to get out of this difficult and, up until then, successful year of international matches, our challenge is still to form a strong team for the next three major tournaments: the European Championship next year, the 2022 World Cup and the European Championship on home soil in 2024."
