Zsolt Löw has reportedly dropped out of the race to replace the recently sacked Pellegrino Matarazzo as VfB Stuttgart coach.
According to Sky Germany, talks between Stuttgart and the long-time assistant coach of Thomas Tuchel have broken down.
The top candidate is now said to be Sebastian Hoeness, who left his position as Hoffenheim coach at the end of last season.
Michael Wimmer is in charge on an interim basis until Stuttgart find Mararazzo’s successor.
The likes of Adi Hütter, Gerardo Seoane and Peter Bosz have also been linked with the job.
