Die Welt provide the Low-down on Germany coach’s successor

Jurgen Klopp among their three-man shortlist; Aberdeen also on manager hunt.

SOCCER: The announcement that Joachim Low is stepping down as Germany's head coach after this summer's Euros has led to Die Welt speculating as to his successor.

Inevitably, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is one of the three names they think are in serious contention for the role.

Klopp is joined in the paper's shortlist by former Red Bull Leipzig trainer Ralf Rangnick and Bayern Munich's Hans-Dieter Flick, who worked as Low's assistant between 2006 and 2014.

Klopp is rated a 6/1 chance with BetVictor to succeed Low, with Rangnick 16/1. Flick is not quoted.

Under-21 coach Stefan Kuntz is the early favourite at 3/1, while Steven Gerrard is 33/1.

Derek McInnes Don for at Aberdeen

SOCCER: Aberdeen parted ways with Derek McInnes after his relationship with club chief Dave Cormack became strained.

The duo disagreed on key behind the scenes decisions and that was compounded by a run of just one win in nine games in which the Dons only scored one goal, according to the Scottish Sun.

They say Aberdeen "want to go in a different direction" with McInnes being shown the door.

Former Aberdeen midfielder Stephen Glass has emerged as an early favourite, with the Daily Record saying the Atlanta United 2 boss is who the fanbase want.

He could face competition from Derek Adams, however, with the Daily Record saying the Morecambe boss is keen to return to Pittodrie where he starred as a player.

Glass is 6/4 favourite with Sky Bet, with Adams a 20/1 shot.

Fury vs Joshua won't happen this year, says Chisora

BOXING: Deontay Wilder is 'biding his time' for a trilogy fight with Tyson Fury that will earn him a staggering £60million.

That is the view of fellow heavyweight Derek Chisora, says The Sun.

Chisora says the three-fight deal Wilder has with Team Fury will scupper the chances of Anthony Joshua facing Fury this year, with Wilder's camp confident they have legal precedent on their side.

"He's got a three-fight deal. Yeah, the legal side is there, bro," said Chisora.

"I'm telling you, man, we all want this fight [Joshua vs Fury] to happen, but it's not going to happen now."

Nevertheless, Matchroom Boxing chief Eddie Hearn remains confident the Joshua-Fury fight will come to fruition, maintaining it is "a Team Fury problem" and it "won't impact our fight".

Fury is an odds-on favourite with Sky Bet should his bout with Joshua go ahead in 2021.

He can be backed at 8/15 with Joshua 11/8.

Fury to win in the first round is 40/1.
