“Not Interested” Thomas Tuchel has already turned down two Premier League clubs since Chelsea sacking

Thomas Tuchel has already turned down offers from two Premier League clubs since leaving Chelsea, but he is still open to extending his coaching career in England.

Following the departure of Frank Lampard, the Champions League-winning manager had a tremendously successful 19-month tenure at Stamford Bridge.

However, his reign was abruptly and bitterly ended last month as a result of the rupture in his bond with Todd Boehly, the club’s new owner.

Tuchel has only spoken once since being fired, and in that speech, he expressed his grief about not being given enough time to right Chelsea’s ship.

The German said on his Twitter account, “This is one of the most difficult comments I have ever had to write – and it is one which I hoped I would not need to do for many years.”

“I am heartbroken that my time at Chelsea is over. I felt at home with this club on a professional and personal level. I want to express my gratitude to the entire staff, the players, and the fans for making me feel so welcome right away.

“The pleasure and joy I experienced when I contributed to the team’s victories in the Champions League and the Club World Cup will last a lifetime.” I feel honored to have contributed to the history of this group, and the last 19 months will always hold significant memories for me.

Despite continuing to reside close to Chelsea’s Cobham training facility, Tuchel is reportedly preparing to go back to Germany by the end of the year since the Brexit law has made his personal situation more difficult.

Two unnamed English teams have reportedly already inquired about the idea of providing an immediate opportunity to return to management, according to The Telegraph.

The 49-year-old is alleged to have rejected such approaches, but should the chance present itself, he would be interested in succeeding Gareth Southgate as England manager following the World Cup.

Even though Southgate recently signed a new contract that would keep him employed until 2024, his situation is not quite as stable as it was following the European Championships last summer.

England will arrive at the World Cup in Qatar next month in bad shape after being kicked out of the Nations League and drawn into a challenging group for the European Championship that includes teams like Italy, Ukraine, and North Macedonia.

At last week’s Euro 2024 qualifying draw, Southgate was asked about his future. He responded, “As we speak, I’m contracted until this time in 2024, but I’m also well aware that in football you have to have results.”

So, there is a plan, and there is a need for continuity, but I also don’t take it for granted that you won’t perform poorly and expect to keep your job.
