thumbnail Hello,

The Germany boss is under contract until 2016 but admits that he could be fired if his side fail to make an impact at this summer's World Cup

Germany coach Joachim Low says he wants to see out his contract with the national team but admits that he'll be judged on results.

The former Stuttgart boss extended his current deal until after Euro 2016 back in October after overseeing the side since the end of the 2006 World Cup.

Though he has brought through a number of young talents, his lack of wins at major tournaments remains a sticking point but Low wants to continue for two more years.

"Without fuelling speculation, I know that a coach is always measured by what happens at tournaments," he told SID.

"After the World Cup, our sporting team is sure to sit down with the person in charge and analyse everything.

"I'm one of the few still in charge since 2006. Nearly every other association has changed coach since then but I'm currently assuming I'll stay until 2016.

"I'm not thinking about it, I'm fully focused on the World Cup. If we win the title, it would be a great feeling and would also serve as motivation for the coming years - just like [Spain boss] Vicente del Bosque wanted to win Euro 2012 after the World Cup."

Germany kick off their World Cup with a clash against Portugal in Salvador on June 2016.
