Joachim Low will bring an end to his 15-year spell in charge of the German national team following the conclusion of Euro 2020 this summer. The 61-year-old led his nation to World Cup glory in 2014 and finished runner up in Euro 2008.
He will attempt to win one final major tournament with Germany before stepping away from management.
Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been strongly linked with taking over from Low, while Bayern Munich’s Hansi Flick is also a contender.
Klopp is under contract with the Premier League champions until 2024 but he has come under pressure this season.
Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Fulham leaves the Reds eighth in the table.
If Liverpool fail to qualify for the Champions League then some of Klopp’s biggest stars may feel the need to move on.
The German coach could also follow suit, especially with the oportunity to manage his home country available.
