Ex-RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick interested in taking over as new Germany manager to replace Joachim Low after Euro 2020

RALF RANGNICK is open to succeeding Joachim Low as Germany boss.

The former RB Leipzig manager, who is currently not in management, would replace Low after Euro 2020 if he is appointed.

Speaking to Sky Germany, Rangnick said: "It is a job which matters to anybody.

"It is a question of timing. At the moment, I am free. Should the DFB call me once I am not free anymore, it'd be too late."

The 62-year-old has achieved considerable success during his managerial career.

He guided Leipzig to Bundesliga promotion in 2016 before being replaced by current Southampton boss Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Rangnick returned as Leipzig coach ahead of the 2018-19 season, guiding them to a third-place finish and the German Cup final, which they lost to Bayern Munich.

Between his two stints with the Red Bull-owned side, he was in the running for the England job.


Low is set to leave his role as Germany manager after Euro 2020.

The 61-year-old has enjoyed 15 glorious years in charge of his national side, winning the World Cup in 2014 and the Confederations Cup in 2017.

And there are many coaches being talked about as a potential successor.

The most notable of which is Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

The 53-year-old has distanced himself from the job, although he may change his mind if he is sacked – not an impossible scenario considering Liverpool have lost six on the bounce at Anfield in the Premier League.

Another candidate is Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick.

The 56-year-old, who won the Champions League last season, was Low's assistant between 2006 and 2014.

Many view him as the perfect candidate, but like Klopp, he has ruled himself out of the running.
