Germany coach Joachim Low will be freshly motivated to lead the national team towards the 2014 FIFA World Cup, team manager Oliver Bierhoff says.
Low came in for criticism after Germany's semi-final exit to Italy at EURO 2012, but Bierhoff said Low had always 'found something' to help the team develop after every tournament.
"Jogi Low will analyse the game against Italy for himself and he will soon find the energy again for the next stretch. I am not worried about Jogi," Bierhoff told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung daily.
Low was criticised in the German media for using the wrong tactics against Italy which beat Germany 2-1.
But Bierhoff said 42-year-old Low would return from holiday with his batteries recharged and reputation intact.
"In 1999 Bayern (Munich) lost the Champions League final with Ottmar Hitzfeld and there was a big discussion. Two years later, they then won the final," he said.
