Germany coach Joachim Loew is not in danger of losing his job after his team was thrashed 6-0 by Spain in its final Nations League group match on Tuesday, national team director Oliver Bierhoff has said.
Germany suffered its worst defeat in a competitive game as Spain ran riot and a stunned Loew was at a loss to explain his side's capitulation in Seville which prevented its qualification for the Nations League semifinal.
Germany has hit a rough patch this year, winning only three of its last eight matches, but Bierhoff said Loew would remain in charge at least until the Euros next year.
When asked if Loew would remain the coach until next year's Euros, Bierhoff told ARD TV : “Absolutely, yes. This game changes nothing. We still trust Joachim Loew, no doubt about that.
“With the national team, you have to think and analyse from tournament to tournament. We want to achieve the maximum at next year's Euros.”
The Euros were originally scheduled for June-July this year but the tournament was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Germany needed only a draw to progress to the Nations League semifinal but the result ensured Spain advanced as the top ranked team in the group.
