Christian Gross: Leading contender for Nurnberg job

The Swiss is the frontrunner for the vacant position following the dismissal of Michael Wiesinger on Monday night, but Nurnberg's director of sport Martin Bader has refuted a claim by the Bild newspaper that he had been appointed.

"Nothing is definite with Mr Gross," said Bader to Sport1. "We're currently considering several options."

Gross is currently out of work since being dismissed by Young Boys Bern in April 2012 while he would be no stranger to the Bundesliga having coached Stuttgart between December 2009 and October 2010.

Whoever is appointed will have the clear task of keeping the club in the Bundesliga, where they have established themselves recently.

"Nurnberg have proven in recent years that we belong in the Bundesliga," Bader said. "I think after finishing sixth, 10th and 10th in the past three seasons, we should be confident enough to say that.

"Furthermore, we have managed to develop the team constantly, improving step by step, and we want to carry on this path with our new coach."

In the meantime, youth-team coach Roger Prinzen is leading the first team's training with a new full-time coach expected to be installed during the two-week break for internationals.

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
