Joachim Low announced on Monday that he would vacate his role as head coach this summer after 15 years on the job.

Rangnick wants to manage Germany national team

Ralf Rangnick says he is ready to take over for Joachim Lowe. Low is set to leave his post as Germany national team manager after the European Championship. He announced on Monday that he would vacate his role as head coach this summer after 15 years on the job. Ralf says he would be interested in taking charge if the timing was right. While the former RB Leipzig head coach thinks he could also work with the German national team in a different role. “It is a job that matters to everyone,” he told reporters. “Actually, I can imagine a lot of things. It’s a matter of timing. I’m free at the moment. Should the DFB call me when I’m no longer free, it would be too late.”

 

Rangnick added: “I can very well imagine that a cooperation with Oliver Bierhoff would be very productive, especially for the future of German football.”

The 62-year-old German head coach is best known for his time with the Red Bull organization. There he became one of the developers of the gegenpressing system. He was RB Leipzig manager twice, being the head of sport and developing the entire Red Bull stable of clubs. Rangnick left Red Bull in 2020, helping build RB Leipzig into one of the best teams in German football. Also, Rangnick has been named as an influence on Thomas Tuchel, Julian Nagelsmann, Ralph Hasenhuttl and Jurgen Klopp. The Liverpool manager is supporting Rangnick for the Germany gig after his retirement. “Ralf Rangnick would be good at the DFB,” said Klopp. “He would be my first choice.”
