Ralf Rangnick has made it clear that he has no interest in taking over as coach of the German national team, should he be approached for the position.
Following the dismissal of Hansi Flick on Sunday, the German Football Association is in search of a new manager, with only nine months remaining until they host Euro 2024.
Flick’s tenure saw only 12 wins out of 25 games, including a World Cup group stage exit last year. In his final match, Germany suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Japan.
While Rangnick has been mentioned as a potential candidate for the German Football Association, he has denied any such claims and affirmed his commitment to his current role, as the Euros are less than a year away.
The Austrian claimed he has no interest in the Germany role, telling ORE: “No chance. I decided 14 months ago to work as head coach in Austria, prepare the team to qualify for the Euros, and play a good role there. Everything else is not a topic for me.”
Jurgen Klopp is reportedly the German Football Association’s (DFB) first option for his replacement, as per The Mirror, despite the fact that they are aware it would be extremely difficult to persuade him to leave Liverpool.
