JULIAN NAGELSMANN has been appointed as the new German national team coach for Euro 2024, according to reports.
The 36-year-old was sacked from Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich just six months ago.
The former Bayern manager has been out of work since last season as he was replaced by ex-Chelsea and PSG coach Thomas Tuchel.
Nagelsmann had been linked to the then-vacant role at PSG, only for Luis Enrique to be named the new manager in the French capital.
Now he is set for a return to the dugout for the national team, according to German outlet Bild.
Germany will host the Euro 2024 and the national team has been without a manager after sacking Hansi Flick last week.

They have recorded just three wins from their last 12 fixtures – beating Oman, Costa Rica and Peru.

This will be Nagelsmann's second time replacing Flick as he took over his role at Bayern in 2021.
