Former Stuttgart boss Rolf Fringer has voiced his admiration for Germany coach Joachim Low and feels the 53-year-old has revolutionised the side since taking charge.

The Austrian has believes that the Nationalelf are no longer mainly known for their impressive work-rate like before, but have become a team that's all about attractive football.

"The national team were always known for the typical German virtues. Low has revolutionised German football, though, and has given the team an entirely new identity and football culture than it had before," he told Goal.com.

"Ever since Jogi has taken charge of the team, German football has been valued much higher abroad. Simply because the team plays better football under him.

"Germany had good players before as well, but it was all about physicality and duels. German football has another look now and it's a rather pleasant one."

Low took over as Germany boss after the 2006 World Cup, and guided them to the final at Euro 2008, while the Nationalelf made it to the semi-finals at both the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012.

He succeeded Fringer at the Mercedes Benz Arena, leading them to the DFB-Pokal in 1997.
