LONDON, June 8 (Reuters) - European equity futures slipped on Monday, with shares in Deutsche Bank in focus after Germany's largest lender named a new chief executive.

The euro zone's blue-chip Euro STOXX futures fell 0.3 percent, as did Germany's DAX futures. By contrast, France's CAC futures fell 0.1 percent while Britain's FTSE 100 futures contract was flat.

Deutsche Bank purged its leadership on Sunday, appointing Briton John Cryan as chief executive to replace Anshu Jain just two weeks after Jain was given more power to reorganise the bank.

Deutsche Bank has struggled to restore an image tarnished by a raft of regulatory and legal problems which include probes into alleged manipulation of benchmark interest rates, mis-selling of derivatives, tax evasion and money laundering.

The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index had fallen 0.9 percent on Friday, weighed down by a slump in the Athens stock market, which slid to one-month lows after Greece delayed a debt payment.

The European Union's exasperation with Greece burst into the open on Sunday when its chief executive rebuked leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and warned that time was running out to conclude a debt deal to avert a damaging Greek default.
