Tuchel takes decision on replacing Southgate as England manager
Former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is open to managing England if head coach Gareth Southgate steps aside following the Three Lions’ 2022 FIFA World Cup exit.
According to The Sun, Tuchel, who is currently out of a job after he was sacked by Chelsea in September, would be interested in taking the England job if Southgate stands down.
England’s World Cup hopes were dashed over the weekend as Southgate’s side were beaten 2-1 by France in the quarterfinal.
Southgate, meanwhile, sparked speculation over his own future by insisting after his side’s elimination from the World Cup that he is not sure if he wants to continue as England manager.
However, the report added that the Football Association (FA) would prefer to appoint a British coach as Southgate’s successor, which puts the likes of Graham Potter, Eddie Howe, and Brendan Rodgers in the frame.
When asked by The Hindu Times if he had considered managing a national team, Tuchel said last month: “Yeah, why not?" I would. I didn’t give too much thought to it until now.
“But I would consider if it’s the right team and if it has the potential to win trophies like the World Cup and the Euros.”
