Thomas Tuchel indicates zero interest in Aston Villa’s managerial position following Steven Gerrard’s sacking

Thomas Tuchel, a former manager of Chelsea, is apparently not interested in accepting the position of manager of Aston Villa after Steven Gerrard was fired.

After Steven Gerrard was fired, Aston Villa are searching for a new first-team manager, but Thomas Tuchel won’t take over at Villa Park.

Following a three-goal thrashing at Fulham on Thursday night, Gerrard was fired from the hot seat at Villa Park.

With only two victories from their first 10 league games, the Midlands club is now just one spot above the Premier League relegation zone.

After losing to Dinamo Zagreb on the opening day of the Champions League, Tuchel was fired by the Blues last month.

Dismissing the German coach, who had led the team to a Champions League victory less than a year ago, came as a surprise.

Due to his availability and stellar coaching resume, he is in high demand.

He also led Paris Saint-Germain to their one and only Champions League final the season before Chelsea won the championship.

Last season, Tuchel also led the Blues to the FA Cup and EFL Cup finals, where they were ultimately defeated by Liverpool in penalty shootouts. While at Stamford Bridge, he repeatedly finished in the top four.

Earlier this month, Bayer Leverkusen reportedly made an offer to hire the unemployed Tuchel before moving to hire Xabi Alonso, according to a report from the German media outlet Sport 1.

He rejected approaches from two unnamed Premier League clubs, according to separate reports.

According to a recent article from The Telegraph, Tuchel also has no interest in assuming the open managerial role at Villa Park.

Despite being guaranteed high salaries and a sizable transfer budget, he is claimed to have had no intention of accepting the position.

On Thursday, just minutes before Villa decided to fire Gerrard, the former Liverpool captain pledged to keep battling and not give up.

He said to Prime Video after the game, “It’s harsh, but I’m a man, I accept it. I am aware of their frustration and I share it; I understand it. Personally, I had a difficult night.

I am aware of the circumstances. I’m a fighter, and I won’t give up. We’ll have to wait and see.”

The 42-year-old received jeers from the away crowd as well as cries from a full Craven Cottage that said, “You’re getting sacked in the morning.”

In November, Gerrard made the decision to leave Rangers, the team for which he had won the Scottish championship, and move south of the line. But he didn’t have the same level of success.

When some Villa Park supporters chanted for their manager to be fired following Sunday’s loss to Chelsea, the writing appeared to be on the wall for Gerrard.
