Julian Nagelsmann has given in to the advertising of the German Football Association (DFB) and extended his contract as national coach until the 2026 World Cup.

Nagelsmann should also lead the national team to the next World Cup in two years in the USA, Canada and Mexico. The association announced the decision on Friday (April 19, 2024), 56 days before the start of the home European Championships on June 14th. By the time he won against runner-up world champion France (2-0) on March 23rd, Nagelsmann had convinced even the last doubters of his path.

After submitting the offer and taking time to think about it, the 36-year-old decided against a possible return to his former club Bayern Munich, who were reportedly once again very interested in Nagelsmann.

Challenge of a World Cup

“It’s a decision of the heart. It’s a great honor to be able to train the national team and work with the best players in the country. With successful, passionate performances we have the chance to inspire an entire country. They both have a foretaste of that There were wins against France and the Netherlands in March,” said the national coach.

“I was very touched by the enthusiasm of the fans. Together we now want to play a successful home European Championship, we are all passionate about it. Afterwards, I and my coaching team are really looking forward to the challenge of a World Cup.”

Völler: “A tactical fox”

But they have shown once again what enthusiasm Julian and his team can rekindle in Germany,” says sports director Rudi Völler, who also recently signed his contract until the 2026 World Cup had extended.
