Low dismisses retirement murmurs

After losing to England on Tuesday, Germany manager Joachim Low thinks that his team will be ready for Euro 2024.

After a shocking 2-0 loss to England at Wembley, Germany was eliminated from Euro 2020 in the round of 16. Low's 15-year career comes to an end with the loss, and he will now hand over the reins to Hansi Flick.

Low believes his young squad will be in peak form for the upcoming Euros, which will be held in Germany.

Low said: "It is a disappointment for all of us. We hoped for more, the faith in the team was absolutely there. We had two great chances, but, unfortunately, we didn't score any goals," he said. "We're sorry we're out of the tournament but we've worked hard for the past four weeks, and everyone has pulled along well.

"I can't blame anyone. I am sorry that the great enthusiasm at home is now gone. The disappointment weighs heavily. An hour or two has to pass before you can say a few words to the team. All players are utterly disappointed, so are we.

"We have a lot of young players who will learn from it. At the home European Championships in 2024, some will be at their absolute top level, also in terms of experience."

When asked if he was considering retiring following the setback, Low replied: "You don't shake off a tournament like this in the first few days, because you will need time. I never talked about retirement. There are definitely new tasks that are interesting for me."
