Low: I will not quit if Germany win World Cup

The coach vows to honour his contract and stay in the job until Euro 2016 regardless of the outcome of this summer's tournament in Brazil, where his side are among the favourites

Germany boss Joachim Low is adamant that he would not step down if the Nationalelf were to win this summer's World Cup.

The 54-year-old signed a new deal with the DFB back in October 2013 which tied him down until Euro 2016 but a number of recent reports have suggested that he could vacate his position should he lead the country to victory in Brazil.

However, Low stressed his intention to stay in his current job regardless of the outcome of the tournament.

"As of today, I expect to stay on as Germany coach until 2016. That's what we have agreed upon," he said to Express.

"Some might say I should quit if we win the World Cup but you could also see it as a motivational boost when you become world champions. To build upon such a success and confirm your success would be amazing, too.

"Some people might think winning the World Cup is a good moment to step down but [Spain coach] Vicente del Bosque set his sights on winning the European championships after their World Cup triumph."

Germany will have to deal with Portugal, Ghana and USA in Group G at the World Cup.
