but they will assess the team’s situation according to DFB’s new announcement.

After Germany’s worst defeat since 1931 a lot of criticism raised around Low’s decisions and results which made DFB step in.

Here is DFB’s statement on the matter: "The DFB presidential board has unanimously agreed on a timetable to gather information, evaluate it and advise on next steps,            

"This also gives the national team head coach enough time and emotional distance to fundamentally review the national side's current situation.

"In sporting terms, to analyze the causes of the heavy defeat in Sevilla, but also, personally, to come to terms with the great disappointment. That's part of the process.

"When the presidential board meets on December 4, Oliver Bierhoff, the team director, will provide an overview and assessment of the current situation regarding the national side.

"That will include lessons learned from the loss against Spain, as well as the side's overall development in the last two years.

"The DFB will provide more information at that time about the results of the discussions and next steps."

Low has been Germany’s head coach since 2006 and he won

2014 World Cup
