Goalkeeper Jens Lehmann's future with the German team may depend on whether Jurgen Klinsmann remains as coach.
Lehmann has excelled under Germany coach Klinsmann
Klinsmann is under contract until the end of the 2006 World Cup finals and has so far been vague about his future.
"Whether or not I stay on would depend on my personal situation and whether Jurgen stays," said the Arsenal keeper.
Lehmann, 36, was the hosts' keeper for this year's World Cup, replacing Bayern Munich's Oliver Kahn, who was the number one in the 2002 tournament.
Klinsmann lives in the United States and has been linked with coaching roles in his resident country.
There would be huge disappointment if Klinsmann left
But a run to the semi-finals in his homeland has put an end to the criticism he faced before the tournament began.
Lehmann added: "The players are very motivated and if he left there would be huge disappointment."
"I don't think it's up to us to demand anything of Jurgen. He knows the whole country loves the new kind of football he has introduced.
"I don't think he needs any more petitions for him to know we all want him to stay on."
