After Germany‘s historic debacle against Spain (6-0), a large majority of fans would like to see Joachim Löw, the German coach, leave his post, according to a poll released on Thursday.
Thus, 84% of the 1,100 Mannschaft supporters questioned want the departure of Löw and Oliver Bierhoff, director of the German Federation (DFB) and direct supervisor of the coach, according to the survey commissioned by the sports agency SID, a German subsidiary. from AFP.
Only 13.3% would like the duo that led Germany to the world title in 2014 to remain in place.
Löw, 60, in office for 14 years, is hotly contested after Germany suffered its biggest post-war defeat. She had not lost by six goals since a friendly match against Austria (6-0) in 1931.
However, after a crisis meeting between the coach and Federation President Fritz Keller on Wednesday in Munich, the trend seems to be to keep Löw in his post until Euro-2021 next June.
Since the World Cup-2018, during which Germany had not managed to leave its group, the Mannschaft has obtained mixed results, until the humiliation inflicted by Spain.
Several German football legends did not hesitate to attack Löw head-on. Lothar Mattheus, captain of the world champions in 1990, felt that the manager should have stepped down after the last title in 2014.
In the event of Löw leaving, Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp and Bayern Munich coach Hansi Flick are the ones German fans would like to see on the bench for Germany, according to the poll.
