Klopp next? Liverpool concern as Low announces Germany split

Germany coach Joachim Low will leave the job after this summer's Euros.

Low will quit after this summer's European Championships following a 15-year spell in charge.

After the announcement on Tuesday, Low said: "I'm taking this step very consciously, full of pride and enormous gratitude, but at the same time will continue to be very motivated when it comes to the upcoming European Championships.

"I'm proud, because it's something very special and an honor for me to be involved in my country. And because I have been able to work with the best footballers in the country for almost 17 years and support them in their development.

"I have great triumphs with them and painful defeats, but above all many wonderful and magical moments - not just winning the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. I am and will remain grateful to the DFB, which has always provided me and the team with an ideal work environment."

The news of his impending departure will now raise questions about the future of Jurgen Klopp, who is top of a fan poll in BILD to be the next Germany manager.

Reports in Germany last month claimed that Liverpool boss Klopp is attracted by the prospect of replacing Low and returning to work in his homeland.
