Berlin: Joachim Loew said on Tuesday that he plans to coach Germany for at least two more years, regardless of results at next month's World Cup, with his contract to expire in 2016.

Having taken charge in 2006, the 54-year-old Loew signed an extension with the German Football Association (DFB) last October and says he plans to at least fulfil his contract which expires after Euro 2016 in France.
