Per Mertesacker: Ex-Germany defender says Joachim Low needs success 'quickly'

Sunday 23:41 GMT

Germany need to be successful again "very quickly" after their group-stage exit from the World Cup in the summer, says former defender Per Mertesacker.

The 2014 World Cup winner, speaking on the Euro Leagues Football Show before Saturday's 3-0 Nations League defeat by the Netherlands, said Low needs improvements quickly if he is to avoid a "very difficult situation". But the former Arsenal defender, who retired in the summer, said there could be a "nice process" of change after they "struggled being champions".
