Tuchel close to EPL return

Published

THOMAS Tuchel is reportedly keen on replacing Antonio Conte at Tottenham should the position become available.

  Tuchel was surprisingly sacked by Chelsea in September with Graham Potter replacing him in the hot seat at Stamford Bridge. The Blues have struggled for results in recent months with fans recently chanting Tuchel’s name during their four-goal FA Cup defeat at Manchester City.

  Tuchel was not interested in taking over at Aston Villa following the sacking of Steven Gerrard in October, with Unai Emery appointed at Villa Park. That came after Bayer Leverkusen made an approach to appoint the out-of-work German, before moving to appoint Xabi Alonso.

  Separate reports have outlined how Tuchel turned down approaches from two unnamed Premier League clubs as he postponed a return to the dugout but he is said to be open to replacing Conte at Spurs – just months after the two clashed in fiery scenes during a Premier League meeting this season.

  Conte’s position at Spurs is coming under scrutiny with the club falling short in the top four race in the Premier League with performances continuing to underwhelm. A report in the Standard claims that Tuchel is interested in the management position should it become available.

  Spurs and Chelsea share a close rivalry but no shortage of former Blues bosses have subsequently moved on to coach the north London side, including Andre Villas-Boas, Jose Mourinho and current Tottenham boss, Conte.
