Tuchel wants to be England’s coach, but there is a problem

1 year ago

Gareth Southgate has yet to decide his future after his World Cup elimination: will he remain England manager or quit? The Sun addressed the situation by hypothesizing some of the possible ways and by putting the name of Thomas Tuchel among the possible candidates to take his place.

In particular, the English tabloid stated that the German manager, after his farewell to Chelsea, would be a candidate to lead the Three Lions having great knowledge of English talents: both those trained at Stamford Bridge and those that he has faced.

His name is certainly of great prestige but there would be a problem. the FA would primarily prefer that Southgate remain in charge of England or, alternatively, that the next coach should be English.

In this perspective, the preferred names would be those of Graham Potter, Brendan Rodgers and Eddie Howe. It also remains to be understood how the relationship with Southgate could be terminated, who still has a contract until 2024, or until the next European Championship.
