Low feels that the job of the England manager is made harder due to the lack of quality players available to him in the top flight of English football.
He told reporters: "If England has a problem, it is that their league has a disadvantage because higher percentage of foreigners, so it becomes difficult for national coach to get things moving.
"We have changed over recent years because lots of young German players in German clubs are given an advantage over foreigners and we're benefitting from that.
"In England [there are] many foreigners and perhaps that is not always beneficial."
