Tuchel to Man United? “I loved it in the Premier League”

Is Thomas Tuchel heading back to the Premier League after leaving FC Bayern? On the sidelines of the Madrid game, he gave some subtle insights into the speculation surrounding Manchester United

After last year’s championship, will Thomas Tuchel leave FC Bayern in the summer without another title – for England? At Manchester United, the German record champions’ coach is a hot candidate to succeed Erik ten Hag, who in turn is being considered by those in charge in Munich.

When Tuchel was asked about this on English TV channel TNT Sports before the second leg of the Champions League semi-final at Real Madrid on Wednesday evening (1:2), he initially did not want to answer. “You’re leading me down a difficult path,” he smiled, only to at least hint shortly afterwards that a return to the island would appeal to him. “It’s no secret that I loved it at Chelsea, in England and in the Premier League, for sure. It was a very special time that I look back on fondly. “

During his one-and-a-half-year stint at Chelsea (January 2021 to September 2023), Tuchel won the Champions League, Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup. The separation after the change of ownership hit him hard at the time

Ten Hag’s replacement increasingly likely

The Man United management could now entrust him with the task of getting the English record champions back on track. Ten Hag’s departure has not yet been decided, but is becoming increasingly likely. The Red Devils, who went down 4-0 at Crystal Palace on Monday, have already clearly missed out on the Champions League and are in danger of being left without a European Cup ticket at the end of the season.

This could also give Bayern the chance to end their so far botched coaching search with a return of the Dutchman. Ten Hag coached FCB’s second team between 2013 and 2015 before joining Man United via Utrecht and Ajax Amsterdam in the summer of 2022
