Joachim “Jogi” Löw will remain as Germany’s coach even after their embarrassing exit from the World Cup according to both Bild and Sport Bild. The defending champs lost to Mexico and South Korae and failed for the first time in Germany’s history since 1938 to come out of the group stage. Löw’s job security was called into question because of questionable squad decisions, faulty tactics and puzzling in game subs during the tournament but surprisingly he will get another chance.
- Hatem Ben Arfa to decide this week
Sport.Sky.de claim Hatem Ben Arfa will decide this week, Friday at the latest, about BVB’s offer. The black and yellows have apparently made the free agent an offer. The winger would join an already crowded situation at BVB who have 8 players on the squad (Reus, Philipp, Pulisic, Sancho, Wolf, Schürrle, Yarmolenko and Bruun Larsen) who can play on both wings. If Ben Arfa signs for BVB this could mean one or two players might leave.
- Sebastian Kehl officially introduced
The ex-captain was officially introduced during a press conference on Tuesday. He will help with different tasks concerning the professional player department and be the first contact person for the coach and staff. So far it hasn’t been confirmed by the club but it is likely that he’ll be groomed as Michael Zorc’s replacement.
