The Germany national team coach will depart his side this summer; however, he is not thinking about getting into club management.

Joachim Low

denied any contact with

Barcelona

or

Real Madrid

and is not interested in getting straight into club management.

The 61-year-old will depart his role in the Germany national team when the Euro 2020 ends, putting an end to his 17-year spell with the federation.

The Blaugrana and Los Blancos were speculated to have targeted Low, but he admitted he has not been contacted.

"

Nobody has contacted me," 

Low told reporters.

"I already said some months ago that I want to take a break and nothing has changed since then."’

"I can't take over a club right away," 

Low said.

"I was here at the DFB (German football federation) for 17 years. 

"I need some emotional distance."

Low joined as Jurgen Klinsmann’s assistant in 2004, before starting his reign two years later.

He had a positive beginning when he helped his side have a runner-up finish at the European Championship in the 2008-09 season. He also led them to a third-place finish at the 2010 World Cup.

He then contributed to the World Cup victory four years later.
