Hansi Flick has been confirmed to take over as head coach for the German national team after Euro 2020.
The Bayern Munich boss will replace Joachim Low following his 15-year service to the Die Mannschaft which will come to an end after Euro 2020.
Flick told Bayern last month about his decision to leave the Bundesliga champions at the end of the season and his contract with the national team officially begins on July 1.
The 56-year-old assisted Low between 2006-2014 before joining Bayern and later guiding them to a sextuple in 2020.
Flick on his appointment said: “Everything happened very quickly, especially signing the contract, but I’m really happy to be the Germany head coach from autumn.
“The season has just finished and the last two years at FC Bayern have left their mark on me. The team spirit and attitude of the players were excellent and I will take plenty with me that will help my work in new role.
“I’m really excited because of the class of players we have in Germany, especially the youngsters. We’ve got every reason to be optimistic about future tournaments, including the home EUROs in 2024.”
