Report: How Thomas Tuchel would feel about taking the Tottenham job, after leaving Chelsea

Reports have claimed that Thomas Tuchel would be open to taking the Tottenham job if Antonio Conte leaves.

According to the Evening Standard, the German would be keen in following in Jose Mourinho’s footsteps of managing both Chelsea and Spurs.

However, it has since come to light that performances on the pitch have hardly been to blame, with it more being off the field issues that led to his departure after 100 games in charge of the club.

Reported issues have included his relationship with new owner Todd Boehly, as well as his lack of playing time handed to summer signing Carney Chukwuemeka.

Tuchel open to Spurs job

He is certainly yet to be forgotten at Stamford Bridge. Fans could be heard loudly singing his name from the away end during the 4-0 loss against Manchester City at the Etihad.

The support for Tuchel has widely been recognised as not being particularly against current manager Graham Potter, who ousted the likes of Mauricio Pochettino to the job after the sacking.

There may be less support for the German from the Stamford Bridge faithful after the Evening Standard’s report that he would be interested in taking the job as Spurs manager.

He has been widely reported to be wanting a return to management, however the opportunity to come back into an elite job has not yet cropped up.

Reports have linked him with a job as the manager of England, with Gareth Southgate’s future undecided following a disappointing quarter-final knockout in the World Cup.

Mourinho took the job at Spurs after a stint as manager of Manchester United, where he had already done his best to ruin things with the Chelsea fans during the heated affair against Stamford Bridge when Maurizio Sarri was in charge.
