The homegrown Dynamo is also looking forward to the challenge: “For me, this task marks the beginning of a new chapter in my life – and I’m very happy that I can also open this chapter at SGD.”

“During my time as a professional soccer player, I was always very interested in the processes involved in a team – that’s why I’ve used the past few months to get to know various areas of responsibility in the club as part of the internships,” said Löwe, describing the transition process.

The previous midfielder switched from FSV Glückauf Brieske/Senftenberg to the youth department of the SGD in 2010 and from then on went through all youth teams.

He was able to draw attention to himself with good performances, especially in the U19 Bundesliga. In the 2016/17 season, he scored eight goals in 24 appearances and also gave two assists.

He has been a constant part of the professional squad since the 2018/2019 season, but only made ten appearances for the first team and did not get a chance in the relegation year that just ended. However, his goal in the derby against the fans remains for the fans FC Erzgebirge Aue in April 2019 in the 3-1 away win of the Black and Yellows for a while.
