Joachim Löw will remain as the Germany boss at the 2016 European Championships after rumours had arisen regarding his future.
Following Germany's 1-0 World Cup victory against Argentina in the Maracanã, Löw signalled he would be taking time to think about his future after winning football's biggest prize with his country - their first win since 1990.
In October 2013, Löw was offered a new contract by the DFB (German Football Association) following the team's devastating World Cup qualifying campaign where they won nine of their ten matches in Group C.

The team then lead on from this by making a storming start to their World Cup campaign, beating Portugal 4-0, which included a hat-trick from Thomas Muller.
From then on, Germany marched on staying unbeaten for the whole tournament, keeping four clean sheets in seven games and pulling off an unbelievable semi-final win where they beat Brazil, 7-1.
After their World Cup victory, Philipp Lahm stepped down as captain of the national team and Löw will be the man overseeing the search for a new leader.
As a player, Löw was only capable of making four appearances for Germany's under-21 squad but as a manager, he has been part of the national team set up for 10 years. He worked as Jurgen Klinsmann's assistant between 2004 and '06 before taking charge of the side ahead of their hosting campaign for the World Cup.
Over those year's that Löw has been in charge, Germany have been in transition with focus from Bundesliga clubs being put into nurturing home grown young talent from their academies. Players such as Thomas Muller, Andre Schurrle and Christoph Kramer have all risen through the club ranks and made it into the national side.
Because of this growth, the 54-year-old has become a widely recognisable figure, not just for his managerial attire. You would forgive him for being interested in a move to a European club side considering all the possible silverware on offer but the idea that he can continue to motor this German machine into an era of domination starting at the European Championships in France in two years time will excite him and would be beneficial for the next man in line.
Unfortunately for many European bidders, this German is not for sale.
