The early end of the German team at the World Cup in Qatar has its first consequences.

Oliver Bierhoff is no longer DFB director.

Frankfurt - After the preliminary round of the German national team at the 2022 World Cup, a first personnel decision was apparently made.

Shortly after Brazil's 4-1 victory over South Korea, ZDF presenter Katrin Müller-Hohenstein announced that DFB director Oliver Bierhoff was leaving the German Football Association with immediate effect.

As a result, the 54-year-old, who has worked for the DFB since 2004, prematurely terminated his contract, which was valid until 2024, on Monday evening.

According to media reports, this was done by mutual consent.

The former national player, who shot the DFB team to the title at the 1996 European Championship, has held the newly created manager post of the national team since 2004 and became director of national teams and academy in 2018.

Now he has to give up his post.

"After 18 years in responsible positions at the German Football Association (DFB), I have resigned from my position as Managing Director National Teams & Academy with immediate effect.

I agreed on this today with President Bernd Neuendorf.

I'm paving the way for new decisions," the former attacker was quoted as saying in a press release.
