After Joachim Low, the head coach of the German national team has announced that he will leave his post after the European Championship a wild guess has started. Of course, bookmakers are also offering odds for his replacement. With all top German coaches mentioned in the new German manager betting predictions.
Joachim Low has been the manager of the German national team for a long time now, since 2006. He led the team to the final of the 2008 European Championship where they lost against Spain. Who also beat them in the semi-final at the 2010 World Cup. The team also reached the semi-final in Euro2012 while in the next world cup in Brazil no one could stop them. Low won the FIFA World Coach of the Year award in that year. France stopped them in the semi-final of the Euro2016 but the team still played well. Unlike in the last world cup in Russia where they were eliminated in the first round after losing against Mexico and South Korea in their group games. Even though Germany qualified for this year’s European Championships, they suffered their worst defeat against Spain when they lost 6-0. After the poor result it’s not surprising that many fans asked for a change which could also led to the announcement of Low.
New German manager betting predictions favor Low’s colleagues
Marcus Sorg has been the assistant manager of the German team since 2016 so he knows the team well. Before this role he led the German U-19 team to the title at the 2014 European U-19 Championship. Sorg also started his career as a player but didn’t get to the top level. But after working with Low for a few years now, he might be considered as his replacement. As it’s shown by his odds of 4.00 at 1xBET in the new German manager betting predictions.
The head coach of the U-21 team, Stefan Kuntz can be a better choice though. As he is more popular and well-known in the world of football. He was a member of the German team which won the European Championship in 1996. And also played for Vfl Bochum, 1.Fc Kaiserslautern and Besiktas. After his retirement Kuntz worked as a director at his former club, Bochum and as a manager at smaller clubs. He became the U-21 coach in 2016 and won the European U-21 Championship with the team in 2017. Kuntz worked closely with the first team ever since. Online sportsbooks in Germany also offer the odds of 4.00 for his appointment.
More glamorous candidates include Klopp, Flick and Rangnick
Possibly most German fans would love to see Jurgen Klopp as the new manager of the German team. But he is currently the manager of Liverpool with a contract until 2024. So he denied all assumptions of his takeover. The 53-year-old is one of the most characteristic and successful managers right now. He won the Bundesliga twice with Dortmund and reached the final of the Champions League in 2013. While he managed to win the tournament with Liverpool in 2019. Last year Klopp also led the Reds to the Premier League title. But this season the team has been struggling and even Klopp’s position can be in danger.
Another top manager mentioned by online gambling sites in Germany is Hansi Flick with the odds of 6.00. He has been the right hand of Low between 2006 and 2014. But he’s become a top candidate to replace him following his huge successes at Bayern Munich. Flick and the team won everything last season including UEFA’s Coach of the Year award. He has already had a great relation with most players of the national team and could bring back other players, like Thomas Muller. Fritz also has a contract until 2023 but can be bought out of it by the DFB. While former RB Leipzig manager Ralf Rangnick could be available immediately as he is not working at the moment. One of the most experienced German managers has the odds of 7.50 to get the top job now.
