Joachim "Jogi" Löw (born February 3, 1960 in Schönau in the Black Forest ) is a former German soccer player and today's soccer coach . As a player, he was active for SC Freiburg in the 2nd Bundesliga and for other southern German clubs in the Bundesliga . He ended his career as a player in Switzerland .

Löw initially worked as a coach in Switzerland before becoming assistant coach and then head coach at VfB Stuttgart in 1995 . With VfB he won the DFB Cup in 1997 and reached the final of the European Cup Winners ' Cup in 1998 . After several stations a.o. in Turkey he won the Austrian championship in 2002 with FC Tirol Innsbruck . After another job at Austria Wien , he became assistant coach of the German national team under Jürgen Klinsmann in 2004 and, after the 2006 World Cup, his successor as national coach . Löw coached the national team for over 15 years at three world championships ( 2010 , 2014 , 2018 ), four European championships ( 2008 , 2012 , 2016 , 2021 ) and the Confed Cup 2017 and is the national coach with the most games (198). He led the team to their fourth World Cup title in Brazil in 2014 , for which he was voted FIFA Coach of the Year , and in 2017 in Russia to win the Confed Cup for the first time . After the DFB-Elf had always reached at least the semi-finals in the tournaments between 2008 and 2017, the 2018 World Cup and the 2021 European Championship, before which Löw, who had been criticized in recent years, had announced his resignation, were both eliminated early in the preliminary round or in the round of 16.


Löw is the oldest of four sons of a self-employed stove fitter . He spent his childhood and youth in his native Schönau in the Black Forest in Baden. After elementary school he attended high school in Schönau, which he left in June 1977 with secondary school leaving certificate. He then completed an apprenticeship as a wholesale and foreign trade clerk. At the same time he was an altar boy and played football for TuS Schönau in 1896 and later for FC Schönau. The next step on the way to a professional football career was to switch to Sportfreunde Eintracht Freiburg .

Player career

Löw's professional career began in 1978 at SC Freiburg, which had just been promoted to the 2nd Bundesliga . In two seasons he was used 71 times and scored 18 goals.

For the 1980/81 season, the striker moved to the Bundesliga for VfB Stuttgart. Due to a fractured tibia and fibula before the start of the season, he did not play his first game until February 1981. In total, he came to four games this season; he didn't score a goal. After one season, Löw moved to the first division club Eintracht Frankfurt on loan . In his first game on matchday one he scored the opening goal (final score 2: 2) against 1. FC Kaiserslautern . Overall, he scored five goals in 24 Bundesliga games , but could not prevail in Frankfurt.

In June 1982 Löw accepted an offer from the second division club SC Freiburg, so that he was now playing again at his first professional club. SC Freiburg had just hired a new coach, Werner Olk , who, like Löw, had been in Freiburg for two seasons. 1982/83 Löw met eight times and played all 34 games. In his second year he played the best season of his career: He scored 17 goals in 31 games in the second division.

After this season, Löw moved to Karlsruher SC in the summer of 1984 , who played in the 1st Bundesliga. He scored two goals in his 24 games; he was often substituted on. After this season Löw returned to SC Freiburg and played there for four years in the 2nd division. From 1985 to 1989 he played 116 games and scored 38 goals. In the first two seasons he was used in 37 games in which he scored 12 and 17 goals respectively. After that, his playing times became shorter and he scored seven and two goals respectively. Löw then played from 1989 to 1992 in Switzerland for FC Schaffhausen and then for two years at FC Winterthur .

Record as a player

Löw scored seven goals in 52 Bundesliga games, 252 appearances and 81 goals in the 2nd Bundesliga, which he scored for SC Freiburg, and two goals in 11 DFB Cup games for SC Freiburg. He was his record scorer until January 18, 2020, when Nils Petersen overtook him. The former striker also made four appearances with the U21 national team .

On September 27, 2010, Löw was named the sixth honorary captain of SC Freiburg. In the course of reporting on the former sports medicine specialist at the University of Freiburg , Armin Klümper , Löw explained on March 21, 2015 that he was a patient with sports injuries in the practice of Klümper, who had become known through doping. Löw denied having knowingly doped.

Career as a club coach

Associations in Switzerland

As a coach, Löw looked after the D-youth of FC Winterthur in Switzerland in 1994, where he was employed as a player in the National League B at the same time . After moving to third-class FC Frauenfeld , Löw became player- coach in 1994 .

VfB Stuttgart

During his time as a player- coach in Frauenfeld, Löw began training as a football coach in 1994 . He did not initially complete this training. The reason for this was an offer from Rolf Fringer , who had become the new coach of VfB Stuttgart in 1995 and wanted to hire Joachim Löw as assistant coach and enforced this request. In the 1995/96 season, with tenth place, the club did not achieve the hoped-for participation in the UEFA Cup and coach Fringer accepted the offer to become Swiss national coach . His successor in Stuttgart was the assistant coach Löw - initially only on an interim basis - on August 14, 1996, four days before the start of the new season. After six unbeaten games in a row at the beginning of the 1996/97 season, Löw was promoted from interim to head coach on September 21, 1996 by then VfB President Gerhard Mayer-Vorfelder . Löw lost his first game as head coach against Fortuna Düsseldorf .

With the so-called magic triangle around Krassimir Balakow , Giovane Élber and Fredi Bobic , VfB Stuttgart and coach Löw won the DFB Cup in the 1996/97 season with a 2-0 win in the final against Energie Cottbus . A year later, VfB was in the final of the European Cup Winners' Cup , which they lost 1-0 to Chelsea at the Råsundastadion in Solna, Sweden . As in the previous season, Löw reached fourth place in the Bundesliga with VfB and thus qualified for the UEFA Cup . After the end of this season, Löw was released from Mayer-Vorfelder and replaced by Winfried Schäfer .

Fenerbahçe Istanbul

Löw moved to the Turkish football team Fenerbahçe Istanbul in June 1998 . The transfer was arranged by Harun Arslan , who is currently representing him as a consultant and manager. In November 1998 he won the Ataturk Cup with Fenerbahçe against local rivals Beşiktaş Istanbul . He led Fenerbahçe to the fall championship . As a result, Löw was prematurely extended for another year, but with a “special additional clause”. The extension would only be valid if the team had won the Turkish championship at the end of the season. Later in the second half of the season, his coaching plans were disrupted by a series of injuries to the team. Some regular players fell out for several weeks or months with, for example, Fraktur (s) . Therefore, Löw had to resort to football players from the youth team, among other things. By the end of the season he and the team fell back to third place, so the engagement ended on May 29, 1999 after one season. In the season, Löw was the only coach, alongside master coach Fatih Terim from Galatasaray Istanbul , who had not been prematurely sacked.

Karlsruher SC

From autumn 1999 Löw coached the German second division club Karlsruher SC . After eleven years of membership in the Bundesliga, the club was relegated again in 1998. With the aim of promotion, Löw took over the coaching post from Rainer Ulrich on October 25, 1999 . In the spring of 2000, Joachim Löw acquired his soccer teacher license at a special DFB course at the sports school of the Mittelrhein Football Association in Hennef .

This short course was actually intended for particularly deserving national players - Pierre Littbarski , Jürgen Klinsmann and Stefan Reuter were among them. The prerequisite for participation was at least 40 appearances in the jersey of the German national team. According to Gero Bisanz , who was chief trainer of the DFB from 1971 to 2000, Löw, who at that time was still a coach at Karlsruher SC and had not played a single international match for the senior national team in his home country, received a special permit because he had previously had already started training in Switzerland, but had not completed it. The long-time president of VfB Stuttgart Gerhard Meyer-Vorfelder had promised him that he would be able to participate during the time together in Stuttgart. Shortly after the end of the five-month course, which began in January 2000 and in which Löw achieved an overall grade of 1.5 in eight major subjects, Löw was released from the Karlsruhe team before the end of the season, after the team under Löw only received one of 18 Playing had been able to win. The club then rose to the Regionalliga Süd .


After a six-month break, Loew was hired on December 20, 2000 at the Turkish first division club Adanaspor , which was threatened with relegation . Since the upward trend hoped for with Löw did not materialize and the club went through a very turbulent period, Löw resigned as coach after the 22nd matchday. The team was trained by Löw's assistant Kemal Yıldırım and Ahmet Ziya Yüce and rose to the end of the season as bottom of the table from the Süper Lig .

FC Tirol Innsbruck

On October 10, 2001, after being unemployed for six months, Löw was employed by FC Tirol Innsbruck as a coach. Löw continued the successful work of his predecessor Kurt Jara (foreman 2000 and 2001). Although the players had not received a salary for six months, he won the third championship title in a row with FC Tirol Innsbruck in 2002 . In the same year, FC Tirol filed for bankruptcy and dissolved after the Bundesliga license was withdrawn. Löw's employment in Innsbruck ended on June 18, 2002.

Austria Vienna

After a year off, Löw became the coach of FK Austria Wien on June 4, 2003 . After a 2-0 defeat by bottom of the table FC Kärnten , he was given a leave of absence in March 2004, although Austria was the leader of the table. The team later became Austrian runners-up in the 2003/04 season, one point behind.

German national team

Jürgen Klinsmann's assistant trainer

After the 2004 European Football Championship kicked Rudi Voeller as team manager of the German national team back. From July 2004 the leading trio of the German national team consisted of Oliver Bierhoff as team manager , Jürgen Klinsmann as national coach and Joachim Löw as assistant coach . Klinsmann and Löw had completed the coaching course at the sports school of the Mittelrhein Football Association in Hennef . At the Confederations Cup 2005 and the 2006 World Cup , the team came third.

Promotion to national coach

Löw at a press conference in August 2006

On July 12, 2006, Löw was introduced as the new coach of the DFB selection. This space became available after Klinsmann decided not to extend his contract, which was due to expire on July 31, 2006. Löw initially received a two-year contract. As a sporting goal, he named winning the European Championship in 2008 and declared his intention to continue the line represented by Klinsmann and himself in the sporting management. He is the third coach of the national team (after Otto Nerz and Erich Ribbeck ) who was not a senior international.

He made his debut on August 16, 2006 with a 3-0 win against Sweden . The national team also won the following three games without conceding a goal, so that he is the first national coach to start his post with four wins without conceding a goal. The European Championship qualifier against San Marino on September 6, 2006 won the national team 13-0. In their fifth win in the European Championship qualifier in Slovakia (4-1), the German team conceded a goal for the first time under Löw. With five wins at the start, Löw is the national coach with the most successful start. The sixth game against Cyprus (1-1) on November 15 was the first game in which the team he led was not very convincing. On February 7th, 2007, a 3-1 win against Switzerland followed on March 24th, a 2-1 win against the Czech Republic in the top game of the German EURO qualification .

The first defeat for Löw as national coach was on March 28, 2007 in a friendly against Denmark with 0: 1. He used a total of six debutants, including a second division player in Patrick Helmes (then 1. FC Köln). On August 22, 2007, the Loews team, weakened by many injuries, managed a 2-1 away win against England, making it the first team to defeat England at the new Wembley Stadium .

After qualifying for the European Championship after the 0-0 win in Ireland, the weakened German national team lost on October 17, 2007 in the Munich Allianz Arena after a weak game 0-3 against the Czech national soccer team , which was also prematurely replaced by this victory European Championship 2008 in Austria and Switzerland qualified. It was Löw's first competitive game defeat as national coach.

European Championship 2008

Under Löw, the German team reached the knockout round for the first time in twelve years at the 2008 European Championship . In the last group B round match , Germany had to draw at least one draw against hosts Austria , which in turn needed a win to qualify for the next round. The game ended 1-0 for Germany.

For the following encounter in the quarter-finals against Portugal , Löw was banned by the Control and Disciplinary Commission of the European Football Union . Germany won the game 3-2, with the same result also the semi-final against Turkey and met Spain in the final. Spain won this game 1-0 and became European champions.

World Championship 2010

In the qualifying phase at the end of 2008, the team lost 2-1 in a friendly against England. In 2009, the German team lost 1-0 to Norway in their first game of the year. In the course of a controversial trip to Asia by the national team immediately after the end of the Bundesliga season at the end of May, Löw's team scored a 1-1 draw against China and a 7-2 draw against the United Arab Emirates. The four games at the beginning of the 2009/10 season were won without conceding a goal. twice against the World Cup qualifying opponent Azerbaijan, trained by Berti Vogts , and the strongest competitor Russia. With the final 1-1 draw against Finland, qualification for the 2010 World Cup ended as group winners.

Despite the failure of team captain Michael Ballack and some other important players who had to cancel due to injury, Löw did not nominate players with tournament experience such as Torsten Frings, Thomas Hitzlsperger or Kevin Kurányi for the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. Instead, he mainly relied on young players who had little or no A-international experience: goalkeeper Manuel Neuer and Ballack substitute Sami Khedira played only three internationals until the nomination in May 2010, Thomas Müller one, Holger Badstuber none at all. With an average age of under 25, Löw had put together the youngest German World Cup squad since the 1934 World Cup. Six players in the squad had previously won the U-21 European Championship in 2009. Ultimately, with this surprising composition, he laid the foundation for a German team that performed much more strongly in the following years than in previous years.

After the group stage of the World Cup in South Africa, which ended in first place, they achieved a 4-1 victory over the English team in the round of 16 and a 4-0 win over Argentina in the quarter-finals. Both are the highest victories ever achieved by a German team against these teams. In the semifinals, the young team had to admit defeat 0: 1 against the experienced Spaniards, but with almost no chance. The German team only had two chances to score. The subsequent game for third place was won 3-2 against Uruguay.

After the World Cup, in October 2010, Löw was awarded the Federal Cross of Merit on ribbon for his achievements. On November 10, 2010 he received the Bambi in the category “Jury Prize of Honor”, ​​the laudation was given by Mesut Özil .

European Championship 2012

At the European Championship 2012, the German team was in a "group of deaths" with runner-up world champions Netherlands , Portugal and Denmark , who, like Germany, were in the top ten of the FIFA world rankings before the start of the tournament . Germany won all three group games, which no German team had previously managed in a European Championship preliminary round. In the quarter-finals, the team set a new world record in a 4-2 win against Greece with the 15th consecutive competitive game win. In the semifinals, the team lost 2-1 to Italy . In various German media and also by various German ex-players, Löw was attested to be significantly complicit in the departure. Kicker chief reporter Karlheinz Wild said: “Löw, who had previously preached that his team wanted to prevail in this semifinals as always, however, adjusted himself and his family extremely to this extremely good, strong and clever opponent. He adjusted his line-up beyond the dimensions of the Azzurri's staff and style of play, he changed his team seriously and tactically - and gambled away in the process. "

World Championship 2014

In qualifying for the 2014 World Cup, the German team under Löw scored nine wins and one draw and secured participation in the World Cup on the penultimate match day. The team scored the most goals of all European teams, but they also had to accept the most goals against all directly qualified European teams, mainly seven goals in two games against the runner-up Sweden. The preparation for the final round of the World Cup was due to several injuries to important regular players, including. Khedira, Lahm, Neuer, Schweinsteiger and Reus, who was completely canceled due to an injury in the last test match, and a traffic accident with two injured spectators during the training camp in the South Tyrolean Passeier Valley .

The group stage ended with victories over Portugal and the USA and a draw against Ghana as group winners. In the last group game, Löw met his colleague and predecessor Jürgen Klinsmann , who coached the US team. In the round of 16 against Algeria, which was only defeated 2-1 in extra time, Löw's team reached the quarter-finals with their opponents France and were able to prevail here with 1-0. Löw made some tactical changes in this game, in particular Philipp Lahm returned to the position of right full-back, which had previously been called for in the public discussion. Standard situations , in particular corners and free kicks, which used to play hardly any role in training and game design, were upgraded and at this World Cup contributed several times to decisions in favor of the German team. The latter is mainly attributed to the advice and influence of the DFB match observer Urs Siegenthaler and the outgoing assistant coach Hansi Flick . The German team won the semi-final against Brazil 7-1 and became world champions after a 1-0 after extra time in the final against Argentina. Löw is the first and so far only German world champion coach who has never played for the national team himself.

European Championship 2016

In the qualifying round, Germany faced group opponents Georgia, Gibraltar, Scotland, Poland and Ireland and prevailed as group winners in the last game against Georgia in October 2015.

Joachim Löw's new assistant coach has been Thomas Schneider since October 2014 . Marcus Sorg has been his second assistant since March 2016. Löw appointed Bastian Schweinsteiger as the new captain of the national team .

At the 2016 European Football Championship , Germany faced Ukraine, Poland and Northern Ireland in the group stage. With two wins and one draw (against Poland), Germany advanced to the last sixteen, defeating Slovakia. In the quarter-finals, the German team defeated Italy in a competitive game for the first time after a draw on penalties and met hosts France in the semi-finals. She lost this game 2-0. In his third European Championship, Löw also made it into the top four, with which he played a total of 17 European Championship games as a coach, more than any other coach. His five semi-finals at world and European championships are also a record.

Confed Cup 2017

As the 2014 world champion, Germany qualified for the 2017 Confed Cup . Löw renounced a large part of the regular players for the tournament and nominated a "perspective team" with Julian Draxler as captain, who was the only player who had already played 30 international matches before the tournament. In addition, there was no intensive preparation, whereby the friendly game against Denmark and the World Cup qualifier against San Marino were used for recording.

In the group stage, Germany met Australia, Chile and Cameroon. With two wins, including the 100th win in the 150th international match under national coach Löw, and a draw (against Chile), Germany advanced to the semi-finals against Mexico. After a 4-1 win against Mexico, Germany reached the final and met their group opponent Chile again, who had prevailed in their semi-final against European champions Portugal after 120 goalless minutes on penalties. Germany won the final 1-0 after a goal by Lars Stindl in the 20th minute.

World Championship 2018

After a successful qualification in which all ten games were won, the DFB team dropped out of the preliminary round of a World Cup for the first time in its history at the 2018 World Cup in Russia. This was preceded by a 1-0 defeat against Mexico, a 2-1 win against Sweden and a 2-0 defeat against South Korea.

In the course of dealing with the elimination from the World Cup, the longest press conference in DFB history took place at around 110 minutes, at which Joachim Löw and national team manager Oliver Bierhoff answered questions from the journalists. There Löw explained that the mistakes he made at the World Cup were "almost arrogant". He wanted to “perfect” everything and “take it to the extreme”.

UEFA Nations League 2018/19

After the debacle at the 2018 World Cup, another disappointment followed in the group stage of the UEFA Nations League played from September to November 2018 : Germany would have been relegated to League B as bottom group with two draws and two defeats in games against France and the Netherlands and was able to Maintain class only by adding to League A.

On June 8, 2019, Löw did not take part in the European Championship qualifier in Belarus due to illness. It was the first time in 45 years that a head coach missed a game for the German national team.

UEFA Nations League 2020/21

In the new edition of the 2020/21 UEFA Nations League , Germany was drawn into group A4 with Spain, Switzerland and Ukraine. While the first two games against Spain and Switzerland were played 1-1 in each case, the German national team won 2-1 on October 10, 2020 against Ukraine in the UEFA Nations League. In the last game of the Nations League against Spain on November 17, 2020, the national team suffered the only defeat of the UNL season in the extremely weak 0: 6 and at the same time the highest defeat in the 189th international match under Löw and the highest defeat since 1931. It was also the biggest defeat of a DFB selection in a competitive game.

European Championship 2021

Löw brought Mats Hummels and Thomas Müller , whom he had sorted out in March 2019, back to his squad for the EM . The German team, which always played in a 3-4-3 system , faced France , Portugal and Hungary in the group stage . After an opening defeat against the French and a win against Portugal, they reached the round of 16 with a 2-2 draw against Hungary, in which the equalizer only fell in the 84th minute after two defeats and a defeat would have meant the preliminary round. There the DFB-Elf failed at Wembley Stadium to England . Since Löw had announced his retirement after the tournament a few months before the European Championship, Löw's 15-year tenure ended with a total of 198 games after the round of 16 against England.

Contract negotiations and salary

Since 2006, the contracts between Löw and his team as well as the DFB have been made every two years, until the end of the European Championship and World Cup tournaments. There were irritations in 2010. On December 16, 2009, the DFB announced through the then President Theo Zwanziger that Löw's contract as national coach had been extended with a handshake until after the 2012 European Championship . In February 2010, however, Löw stated in writing that there was no such handshake agreement. The background to this was a meeting between Löw, Bierhoff and Theo Zwanziger in Frankfurt, at which the extension of the contract was to be discussed. The desired contract extension was put on hold and new negotiations announced for the time after the upcoming World Cup. Zwanziger spoke of "important substantive differences" between Löw, team manager Oliver Bierhoff and the executive committee.

Allegedly, Löw and Bierhoff had inter alia for the contract extension. demands a bonus amounting to an annual salary. In addition, Bierhoff has demanded a right of veto on the national coach question. Löw was angry about the conduct of the negotiations and the indiscretion he suspected on the part of the DFB. In this way, topics that were discussed internally came to the public. His salary is estimated at 2.7 million to four million euros . In addition, Löw has three lucrative advertising contracts ( Nivea , TUI and Deutsche Vermögensberatung ).

Before the 2018 World Cup , Löw had extended his contract, which ran until 2020, to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar . After the preliminary round at the 2018 World Cup, Joachim Löw asked for time to think about whether he wanted to continue his work as national coach or resign. The DFB Presidium unanimously expressed its confidence in Löw after a conference call. On July 3, 2018, the DFB announced that Löw would continue to work as a national coach. At the beginning of March 2021, Löw announced his intention to resign after the European Championship in 2021 .

In the debate about the removal of the three world champions from 2014, Thomas Müller , Jérôme Boateng and Mats Hummels , from the national team in March 2019, Löw was criticized many times for the timing, the finality and the way in which the decision was announced, among others by Thomas Müller himself, DFB President Reinhard Grindel , the Bayern officials Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Hasan Salihamidžić as well as the former national players Lothar Matthäus , Stefan Effenberg and Didi Hamann .
