Outgoing Bayern Munich manager Hansi Flick will replace Joachim Low as Germany's new head coach after this summer's European Championship.

Low has been in the role since 2006 with the highlight coming in 2014 when Germany were crowned world champions.

Flick won the Bundesliga title twice in his two seasons with Bayern as well as the Champions League last year but announced in April that he would leave at the end of the season and will be replaced by Julian Nagelsmann.

The 56-year-old signed a contract running until 2024, which also includes EURO 2024 to be held in Germany.

Flick was Low's assistant with Germany from 2006 to 2014, stepping down after they won the World Cup in Brazil.

Flick 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 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 my 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.

"From experience, I know that Oliver Bierhoff will be a strong, trustworthy partner and that the staff behind the scenes will help to ensure that we won’t need too long to get going.

"I’m also looking forward to implementing some of my ideas for the national team and the academy.

"At the moment, though, what happens in September is not important – I will have a detailed report in August ready.

"What matters right now is the upcoming tournament and I would like to wish Jogi Löw, Marcus Sorg, Andy Köpke and the team the best of luck.

"Jogi Löw more than deserves a great finish to his wonderful career as national coach."
