DFB wants Loew contract sorted out early



German football federation president Wolfgang Niersbach says he would like early clarity over national team coach Joachim Loew's contract before next year's World Cup in Brazil.

Niersbach told Sport Bild weekly published on Wednesday he would find it "irritating" if Loew's future was still open going into the tournament.

Loew, who was appointed head coach following the 2006 World Cup, has a contract which runs to the 2014 World Cup.

The 52-year-coach told dpa in an interview released Tuesday he had no plans for talks this year on a possible contract extension.

"There will be no talks before the end of 2013," he said.

"There is no reason for this. First of all we want to qualify for the World Cup in Brazil. Then we will consider in good time with the federation what steps to take. To start thinking now about what is happening after 2014 makes little sense."

Niersbach was meanwhile quoted by Sport Bild as saying: "As in 2010 in South Africa we can go into a (World Cup) tournament with open conditions, although I considered that to be irritating to a high degree."
