Berlin, May 31: Germany coach Joachim Low will miss the upcoming Euro 2020 qualifiers against Belarus and Estonia after he was injured in a "sporting accident".
The German Football Federation (DFB) confirmed Low's treatment is proceeding well, but the 59-year-old has been advised by doctors to rest for the next month.
Low will be replaced by his assistant Marcus Sorg and goalkeeping coach Andreas Kopke for the trip to Borisov on June 8 and subsequent visit of Estonia three days later.
Nevertheless, Low plans to remain in contact with them and team manager Oliver Bierhoff around the fixtures.
"I'm feeling well again, but I have to relax a bit over the next four weeks," Low said in the DFB's statement.
"I'm in constant contact with my coaching team, and we'll be in close contact with each other around the two matches.
"Marcus Sorg, Andy Kopke and Oliver Bierhoff have a lot of experience and together we will bridge this short break. "
