Joachim Low is set to continue in his role as the head coach of Germany following the country's semi-final exit from Euro2016.
The 56-year-old, who has been the coach of Die Mannschaft for the last ten years, informed DFB president Reinhard Grindel on Tuesday that he intends to see out his contract.
Low will now remain in charge of Germany national team for their World Cup defence in Russia in 2018.
Low said: "Of course we were all disappointed after losing in the semi-finals. The weeks leading up to and during the Euros took up a lot of energy.
"Getting away from it all for a few days is important. What is clear to me is that, despite our disappointment, the team didn't disappoint
"We had the youngest team at the tournament and I still see huge potential. I am confident that they will still provide us with plenty of joy.
"I'm just as excited as ever to carry on working with these players and continue developing them with the 2018 World Cup in Russia in mind."
