Joachim Löw (born 3 February 1960) is a German football coach, and former player. He is currently the head coach of the German national team, which he led to victory at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil and 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup in Russia.

Playing career

In 1978, Löw started his playing career with 2. Bundesliga club SC Freiburg. He returned to the club twice (1982, 1985) and holds the club's overall goal scoring record. In 1980, Löw joined VfB Stuttgart in the Bundesliga, but he had difficulties establishing himself in the starting lineup and played only four matches.

In the 1981–82 season, Löw played for Eintracht Frankfurt (24 matches, five goals), but he returned to Freiburg the following year. In 1982–83, he scored eight goals in 34 matches, 1983–84 he scored 17 goals in 31 matches in the 2. Bundesliga. Afterwards, he returned to the Bundesliga with Karlsruher SC, but he only scored two goals in 24 matches. Later, he joined Freiburg again for four years, played 116 matches and scored 38 goals. Löw concluded his career in Switzerland, where he played for FC Schaffhausen (1989–1992) and FC Winterthur (1992–1994).

Löw played four times for the Germany national under-21 team.

Personal life

Löw has been married to Daniela since 1986; they have no children. The couple met in 1978 and dated for eight years before they got married.

Löw lost his driver's licence twice, once in 2006 (for one month) and once in 2014 (for six months) because of his reckless behaviour behind the wheel (excessive speed and phoning).
