FOOTBALL bosses are preparing to rip up the format for the Euros – and SCRAP some venues.

Uefa privately accept there is no way that next summer’s tournament – postponed because of Covid – will be able to go ahead with the planned 12 host cities.

A worst-case scenario could see one country stage the tournament with four venues being used.

Wembley is due to stage seven games, including England’s three group matches, plus the semi-finals and final.

The competition is sure to go ahead – owing to the millions Uefa will receive from TV companies.

And the governing body is hopeful supporters will still be able to attend.

But some venues are at risk and the tournament will have to be condensed to ensure less travelling.

Places such as Baku in Azerbaijan – now caught in a conflict with Armenia – plus St Petersburg in Russia will be among the first to be dropped.

Bilbao in Spain struggled to sell tickets so would also be in the firing line.

GOOD MORNING FIGHT FANS

UFC President Dana White has delivered another snub to Conor McGregor and Jon Jones – after declaring Khabib the GOAT.

White hailed Russian Nurmagomedov as the Greatest Of All Time and pound for pound best after he sensationally retired following his second-round stoppage of Justin Gaethje at UFC 254 in Abu Dhabi.

The 32-year-old has an undefeated record of 29-0 after he held on to his lightweight world crown.

White told the Eagle in an Instagram post: “You accomplished EVERYTHING you set out to do.

“You are the P4P best fighter in the world and you truly are the G.O.A.T of the sport. 29-0

Meanwhile, Jones has rejected Khabib’s claim he is the best pound-for-pound fighter.

Current P4P king Jones quickly refuted Khabib’s request in a lengthy Twitter rant.

He wrote: “Until I take that heavily crown, I grant you the spot. Enjoy Champ.”

He then tweeted: “15 world titles, numbers don’t lie.”

In other news, Khabib suffered from mumps as well as a broken foot and toes in the build-up to his win over Gaethje.

According to UFC journalist Kevin Iole, Khabib’s coach revealed he was out of action for two weeks with a case of the mumps.
