Joachim Low has earned plaudits for his role as Germany coach
Joachim Low has become a potential target for a number of clubs across Europe after producing a free-flowing Germany team.
Low, 52, has no recent club management experience and inherited the national team role after being assistant to Jurgen Klinsmann between 2004 and 2006.
The pair brought a new attacking policy to a German side renowned for its stoic defensive policies, and their form in the 2006 World Cup on home soil swelled optimism across the country.
Germany were beaten in the semifinal by eventual winners Italy, and Klinsmann left his role after the finals, allowing Low to step into the role of national manager.
Low increased the speed of the German team’s game and focused on possession of the ball. The tactic almost paid off in Euro 2008 until the Germans met the masters of the art, Spain.
The outcome was the same at the 2010 World Cup where Spain beat Germany in the semifinals.
But Low would represent an astute appointment for Manchester City with his brand of football welcomed by supporters across the continent.
However, the question over his experience at club level may see City owner Sheikh Mansour move in another direction.
