Germany legend want to see Flick replace Low after Euro 2020.

A few days ago, the German Football Association (The DFB) announced that the contract of Germany national team’s boss,

Joachim Low

, would expire at the end of Euro 2020, and the German would step down from his position after 15 years. Some thought it would happen sooner, but the DFB decided to continue with Low until the end of the upcoming summer tournament.

Joachim Low took over at Germany after the 2006 World Cup, replacing

Jürgen Klinsmann

, and has performed brilliantly over the past 15 years.  The Germans culminated in the 2014 World Cup, and became world champions with historic results, including a 7-1 victory over Brazil.

Germany legend

Lothar Matthaus


Bayern Munich


Hansi Flick

is the best person to replace Low and lead the Germans after Euro 2020.

In an interview with

Sky Sport Germany

, Matthaus said:

"He's a person of harmony, but he has to feel good.

"If he no longer feels comfortable at Bayern, he will tell his bosses and then he will be the ideal candidate for the national team."

Matthaus said earlier that he has no interest in leading Die Mannschaft, however, it appears that the 59-year-old has changed his mind.

"The DFB has to think about what it wants. Pros and cons are weighed up against each candidate,"

he added.

"I'm someone who likes to help. If I had the feeling that those responsible were united behind the decision, I would start to think about it."
