If Antonio Conte leaves Tottenham, Thomas Tuchel is reportedly interested in taking his place.
Thomas Tuchel, the former manager of Chelsea, is prepared to take the reins once more and is reportedly willing to succeed Antonio Conte at Tottenham should the opportunity arise.
Following a string of subpar performances and outcomes, Conte’s job has come under fire.
The North London Derby loss on Sunday increased Conte’s pressure because his team is now five points out of the Champions League qualification spots. Concerns about the team’s playing style are present among the supporters.
Although Spurs have the opportunity to exercise a 12-month contract extension with the Italian, he has repeatedly declined to commit to the club through the end of the current campaign, when his contract expires.
After being fired by Chelsea in September of last year, Tuchel is currently taking a break from football and is without a job. But he is now prepared to play again and is open to suggestions from top teams.
After Steven Gerrard was fired from Aston Villa in October and Unai Emery was named as his replacement at Villa Park, Tuchel expressed no interest in taking over the club.
Before moving to appoint Xabi Alonso, Bayer Leverkusen had made an effort to hire the unemployed German.
Due to his impressive coaching resume, Tuchel is undoubtedly in high demand. Last season, he 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. After taking over for Frank Lampard just a few months earlier, Tuchel’s greatest accomplishment in the Stamford Bridge dugout came in 2021, when the club won its second Champions League final.
Prior to winning the trophy with the Blues, he led Paris Saint-Germain to their only appearance in Europe’s championship club competition.
The 49-year-old is rumored to be studying Spanish, indicating that he would be interested in a prominent position in La Liga.
Zsolt Low and Arno Michels, Tuchel’s longtime aides, would be free to follow him to a new team, but Benjamin Weber, his previous analyst, is now the sporting director at SC Paderborn.
Glenn Hoddle, Andre Villas-Boas, Jose Mourinho, and Antonio Conte are the four former Chelsea managers that Daniel Levy, the chairman of Spurs, has hired.
Pochettino has also previously stated that he plans to return to Tottenham one day to finish the job he began there and that his next position would be at a prestigious club, especially one that competes in the Champions League and is from England or Spain.
