If the Tottenham job opens up, Thomas Tuchel wants to take it over from Antonio Conte. Graham Potter replaced Tuchel as manager of Chelsea FC in a shocking move in September. Fans chanted Tuchel’s name during the Blues’ 4–0 FA Cup loss to Manchester City, the latest in a string of poor results for the club.
Thomas Tuchel “not interested” following Chelsea’s firing
Less than 48 hours after Tuchel’s dismissal, former Brighton manager Graham Potter named his replacement. Sport 1 has reported, using information from Sport Witness, that Tuchel has been contacted about a possible comeback to coaching.
There is a lot of heat on Bayer Leverkusen manager Gerardo Seoane. The report suggests that the Bundesliga club has contacted Tuchel to see if he would be interested in taking over. They made it apparent that he was “not interested” in the Leverkusen position. Whether or not Leverkusen’s precarious situation in the Bundesliga was a factor in Tuchel’s decision is currently unknown.
The German club is currently in second-to-last place. Tuchel’s reputation is still high after the excellent job he accomplished at Stamford Bridge, despite his abrupt dismissal. After succeeding Frank Lampard as manager, Tuchel led the Blues to the Champions League, UEFA Super Cup, and FIFA Club World Cup titles.
Before they faded away before the New Year, Chelsea appeared to be a serious threat to Manchester City. Also, Liverpool for the Premier League title last season. After a disappointing start to the season, Boehly made it clear that he wanted to make a change at Blues and fired Tuchel as manager.
