Germany Manager

Joachim Löw

The man. The myth. The legend. Perhaps the most iconic manager at the World Cup, Joachim (Jogi) Löw has been manager of Die Mannschaft since the end of the 2006 World Cup. In that time, he has led to Germany to two semifinal appearances and one final appearance in the Euros and one semifinal appearance in the 2010 World Cup. This in itself would be impressive, but he also won the 2014 World Cup, presiding over the German machine in the iconic 7-1 thrashing of Brazil. While Löw’s player career may have been nothing special, his managerial career has been notably more successful. Managing teams in Austria, Turkey, and Germany, he won the DFB-Pokal, Austrian league title, and Austrian Supercup before becoming assistant to Jurgen Klinsmann, former German head coach, in 2004. Having never exited the Euros or World Cup before the semifinals, Löw knows how to lead this team and is a favorite to win back to back World Cups, something that hasn’t been done since Pelé’s time with Brazil in 1962. It’s easy to say that this isn’t Löw’s year, but in the words of Gary Lineker, “At the end the Germans always win” (“‘At The End The Germans Always Win’”). So what’ll it be Jogi? Another display of German dominance? Or will we finally see the king of international football dethroned?
