After rejecting 3 clubs, Thomas Tuchel is ready to return to the Premier League
Thomas Tuchel, who was most recently the manager of Chelsea, is ready to get back into the game and seems interested in taking over for Antonio Conte at Tottenham if that job opens up.
There are rumours that Thomas Tuchel would be happy to take Antonio Conte’s place as manager of Tottenham Hotspur.
After Chelsea fired Tuchel without warning in September, Graham Potter was named the new manager. At Stamford Bridge, where the team plays, Potter is now in charge. The Blues haven’t had much success lately, and their fans started chanting Thomas Tuchel’s name when they played Manchester City in the FA Cup.
When Steven Gerrard was fired as manager of Aston Villa in October, Tuchel made it clear that he didn’t want the job. At Villa Park, Unai Emery was chosen to be the team’s manager. This happened because Bayer Leverkusen made a job offer to the unemployed German, but they chose to hire Xabi Alonso instead.
Just a few months after they got into a fight during a Premier League game this season, Tuchel reportedly wants to replace Conte at Spurs. Two unnamed Premier League teams reportedly made offers to Tuchel, but he turned them down to delay his return to managing.
Spurs’ lacklustre play in the Premier League, which has taken them out of the race for the top four spots, has led to more criticism of Conte’s job at the club. A report in the Standard said that Tuchel is interested in becoming a manager if one opens up.

Spurs and Chelsea are fierce rivals, even though a number of former Chelsea managers have coached for Spurs. Some of these managers are Andre Villas-Boas, Jose Mourinho, and Antonio Conte, who is now in charge of the north London club.
After his team lost the north London derby on Sunday, Conte is under more pressure than before. His team is now five points behind the spots for the Champions League. Concerns have been raised by fans about the team’s current way of playing.
Given how good his coaching record is, it’s not surprising that Tuchel is in high demand. Last season, he led the Blues to the FA Cup and EFL Cup finals, but Liverpool won both times on penalties. Both times, the title went to Liverpool. When he played for Stamford Bridge, he was often in the top four in each race.
