Thomas Tuchel ‘Wants’ the Manchester United Job

Manchester United

Manchester United appear increasingly likely to appoint a new manager once the season ends and that could be Thomas Tuchel.

Manchester United’s search for a new manager appears to be hotting up with managerial targets being cited throughout the past week. Thanks to Erik ten Hag’s misdemeanours in the past few months. Thomas Tuchel is thought to “want the job” if he is approached by the Red Devils.

Having crashed out of the Champions League in the early stages, his only saving grace has been the FA Cup. His side will face local rivals Manchester City in the final of the cup at the end of the month.

There continues to be more and more discourse surrounding a potential exit. This has seen the likes of Roberto De Zerbi linked in recent months.

But one manager who could be in with a view of the hot seat is Thomas Tuchel – and with the current Bayern Munich boss departing at the end of the season, David Ornstein has claimed that Tuchel, who has been described as an ‘unbelievable’ manager, would seek a move to Old Trafford if Ten Hag left.

Thomas Tuchel interested in Man Utd job

Speaking on the Back Pages podcast on Wednesday morning, Ornstein claimed that Tuchel would be interested in the Red Devils job. With United as a brand failing to decline despite their dip in form.

He said:

“When you’re looking at these candidates, or potential candidates, our understanding is that Thomas Tuchel does want that job if there’s a vacancy.

For example, there will be others who are talked about – the likes of Graham Potter, Gareth Southgate and plenty more besides. I don’t know of the shortlist that has apparently been drawn up.

But the appeal of Manchester United to coaches and managers across the world is not going to go away because they’ve had a dip.”

His exploits with Chelsea, however, will resonate with Old Trafford chiefs the most. That is if he is to take the vacancy at the Theatre of Dreams

Two strong years at the helm saw Tuchel qualify in the top four both times. And he was unfortunate to lose all 3 of his domestic cup finals. But that could quite easily have seen him take 4 trophies in 18 months before being sacked.

That run in itself would be enough to convince United fans that he is the man for the job. Though this season’s poor campaign at Bayern does shroud some doubt.

Manchester United and Tuchel are tailor made for each other. If there’s one man that can take United back to their glory days it is the German.

Tuchel will feel he still has something to prove in England after he was prematurely sacked by Chelsea after Todd Boehly’s takeover.

Meanwhile United are looking forward to a new era with new owners.
