Bierhoff expects Low to stay on as Germany boss
Oliver Bierhoff expects Joachim Low to maintain his role as Germany coach despite Die Mannschaft's shock World Cup elimination.
Joachim Low will stay on as Germany boss despite their elimination from the World Cup, according to the national team's general manager Oliver Bierhoff.
Germany's dismal defence of their crown came to a shuddering halt in Kazan on Wednesday, as South Korea secured a 2-0 victory in Group F.
That defeat, combined with Sweden's 3-0 win over Mexico, condemned Germany to their first opening-round exit since 1938, but Bierhoff insisted there are no doubts over Low, who signed a new four-year contract in May.
"Everyone is deeply disappointed. We had it in our own hands. There is great frustration and a huge disappointment," Bierhoff said.
"Joachim recently signed a contract. Now is not the time for individual analysis. I firmly assume that Joachim carries on.
"In the end it was not enough, we have to accept this athletically.
"It was not supposed to be, in the end it is too little. You can see it in other games that all other teams have a hard time. We created a lot of chances in the tournament."
