Ahead of 2018 FIFA World Cup, defending champions Germany's national football team coach Joachim Low has dismissed rumours that he would be Real Madrid's next manager, following the surprise resignation of the former French skipper Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane said on Thursday as he was resigning that it was time for a change after leading Los Blancos for three years.
"Of course only he (Zidane) really knows why he made the decision and you have to respect his decision, but for me it makes absolutely no difference, I'm in charge of Germany with the World Cup around the corner," Low said at a press conference.
Löw's press conference came on the eve of Germany's Saturday friendly against Austria prior to the 2018 World Cup.
Defending champion Germany are set to play their initial World Cup match as part of Group F (Germany, Mexico, Sweden, and South Korea) with a clash against Mexico on June 17, at Luzhniki stadium in Moscow.
