Joachim Low has hinted he could potentially leave his post as Germany manager in two years after UEFA Euro 2020 and has left the door open for a move to a Premier League club. 

The 58-year-old signed a new Germany deal to 2022 back in May before they endured a miserable World Cup campaign. But he has now cast doubt on his long-term future in the role, per Stephan Uersfeld of ESPN FC:

"The Premier League is always interesting, of course. A very good league. We will see. I can't say right now what will be in two years. I am responsible for the Germany national team, and it brings a lot of fun and motivation for me. In two years, we will see."

Low has been in charge of the Germany national team since 2006 and led them to FIFA World Cup glory in 2014.

They went into Russia 2018 as one of the favourites, but defeats to Mexico and South Korea saw them knocked out at the group stage for the first time in 80 years:

Low survived the humiliation and kept his position as Germany manager.

Barring the summer's calamity, his record as manager of Die Mannschaft is impressive. He oversaw a third-place finish at the 2010 World Cup, while Germany have never failed to reach at least the semi-finals of the European Championships during his tenure. 

His last club role was as manager of Austria Wien between 2003 and 2004, meaning any Premier League outfit may be wary of taking him on should he become available.

As a World Cup-winning manager, though, his reputation would likely ensure interest from high-profile clubs. Uersfeld noted Arsenal were interested in the German as a potential replacement for Arsene Wenger, but they opted to hire Unai Emery in May.
