Germany coach Joachim Löw rebuffs rumours of taking Real Madrid’s helm

Berlin,  Germany’s national football team coach Joachim Löw on Friday dismissed rumours that he would be Real Madrid’s next manager, after former French skipper Zinedine Zidane’s recent surprise resignation from the Spanish club.

Zidane said on Thursday as he was resigning that it was time for a change after leading Los Blancos for three years, reports Efe.

“Of course only he (Zidane) really knows why he made the decision and you have to respect his decision, but for me it makes absolutely no difference, I’m in charge of Germany with the World Cup around the corner,” Low said at a press conference.

Löw’s press conference came on the eve of Germany’s Saturday friendly against Austria prior to the 2018 World Cup.

Defending champion Germany is set to play their initial World Cup match as part of Group F (Germany, Mexico, Sweden, and South Korea) with a clash against Mexico on June 17, at Luzhniki stadium in Moscow.
