Former Manchester United interim manager Ralf Rangnick has ruled himself out of becoming the next Germany national team boss.
The German Football Federation (DFB) are on the hunt for a new manager after sacking Hansi Flick on Sunday.
The former Bayern Munich boss had won just 12 of his 25 games in charge, having overseen a group stage exit at last year’s World Cup, and in his last match on Saturday suffered a humiliating 4-1 defeat to Japan.
The German Football Association (DFB) have shortlisted the likes of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp who is said to be their dream choice, Frankfurt boss Oliver Glasner is also a contender, as is Julian Nagelsmann who has been out of work since getting sacked by Bayern in March.
Another name that has been mooted is Rangnick, who is well admired in the Bundesliga from his spells in charge of Stuttgart, Hannover, Schalke, Hoffenheim and RB Leipzig.
However, the 65-year-old has revealed he is not interested in the Germany role as he is focused on his job as coach of the Austria national team, who are unbeaten after four qualifying games and in a strong position to make it to Euro 2024.
And it’s clearly a job he’s comfortable in, with the gaffer claiming he has no interest in the Germany role, telling ORE: ‘No chance.
“I decided 14 months ago to work as head coach at Austria, prepare the team to qualify for the Euros and play a good role there. Everything else is not a topic for me.”
