Switzerland coach Ottmar Hitzfeld announced on Thursday he will retire after next year’s World Cup finals in Brazil.

The 64-year-old German is one of Europe’s finest coaches and has helped Switzerland climb to seventh in the Fifa rankings.

He guided the Swiss to their second successive World Cup with an impressive unbeaten qualifying campaign.

At club level he won the Bundesliga with Bayern Munich on five occasions and twice with Borussia Dortmund.

He also steered both those Bundesliga sides to Champions League glory.
