Rangnick interested in succeeding Low as Germany head coach

Ralf Rangnick would be interested in succeeding Joachim Low as Germany head coach.

The former RB Leipzig boss has been out of work since leaving as the Red Bull head of sport and development last year.

Low announced this week he will be stepping down from his role with the national team after the Euro 2020 finals, having been in charge for 15 years.

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has already distanced himself from the job, while Leipzig coach Julian Nagelsmann, another popular choice, appears unlikely to move into the international scene at the age of 33.

Rangnick, however, would happily speak with the German Football Association (DFB) about the opportunity.

"It's a job that matters to anybody. In general, I can imagine many things," he told Sky Sport.

"It is a question of timing. At the moment, I am free. Should the DFB call me once I am not free anymore, it'd be too late.

"Now we just have to see what happens over the next few weeks."

Klopp gave Rangnick his backing as the right man to lead Germany into a new era.

Speaking ahead of Liverpool's Champions League last-16 second-leg win over Leipzig, he told Sky: "Ralf Rangnick would do well at the DFB. He would be my first choice."
