Julian Nagelsmann has been named Germany’s next head coach, succeeding the recently fired Hansi Flick.
Nagelsmann, the former Bayern Munich manager, will be in charge of the team until Euro 2024, which Germany will host.
He agreed to terms on a contract that will keep him at the club until the end of July next year, allowing him to leave after Euro 2024.
His assistants are Benjamin Glueck and Sandro Wagner.
Speaking about the challenge ahead, the 36-year-old coach expressed his excitement, saying, “We have a European Championship in our own country—that’s something special. I have a great desire to take on this challenge.”
DFB President Bernd Neuendorf described Nagelsmann as “an outstanding coach” and expressed confidence that he would motivate the national squad and lead them to victory at the Euros.
Rudi Voeller, the DFB’s sporting director, described Nagelsmann as “an absolute football expert” and praised his efforts as a rookie head coach.
Germany’s next task is an October trip to the United States, where they will play friendly matches against the United States and Mexico.
