Donetsk: Spain coach Vicente del Bosque has applauded Joachim Low for his "elegant" approach to leading Germany back into their place amongst the international elite and claimed he is ready to coach Barcelona or Real Madrid.

The 52-year-old originally assumed the role of assistant under Jurgen Klinsmann between 2004 and 2006, but was promoted to head coach after the World Cup six years ago.

He subsequently led die Mannschaft to a runners-up place at Euro 2008 and secured a third placed finish in South Africa.

Del Bosque, who could face Low in a second consecutive European final in Poland & Ukraine, was lost for superlatives when describing his opponent, and sees no reason why he could not go on to coach either Barcelona or Real Madrid one day should the opportunity arise.

"He is an elegant man who represents his country very well," the Spaniard said.

"He has done a job at club and international level."

"Real Madrid and Barcelona would certainly not be too big for him."

Del Bosque went on to claim that Low`s side have no weaknesses and reserved special praise for prolific striker Mario Gomez.

"Germany have been playing football at a very high level," Del Bosque continued. "Their fighting spirit is unique. They are a fantastic team.

"I cannot think of any weaknesses. They are very good defensively, while Mario Gomez is a giant in attack.

"He has sent the eternal Miroslav Klose to the bench, and that certainly means something."
