Thomas Tuchel prepares an incredible return to Chelsea


By: Manu Tournoux

Two weeks ago, Thomas Tuchel and Bayern Munich announced their separation at the end of the 2023-24 season. However, some raised the possibility that the German coach would be fired in the event of non-qualification in the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. The match against Lazio last night was therefore very important for TT, who wants to finish on a good note with the residents of the Allianz Arena. A victory in C1 would also be another great addition to his list of achievements and his CV.

Free at the end of the season, the 50-year-old technician still has a good chance, although he remains a failure in Bavaria. Moreover, even if the possibility of taking a sabbatical year exists, those around him confided to Bild that he will join a new team if a good project is offered to him. It could be FC Barcelona, ​​which is looking for Xavi’s successor. But according to the German media, Tuchel is moderately excited. The language (even if he took some Spanish lessons, editor’s note), the club’s mentality and the various financial problems of the Culés are negative points in his eyes.

TT open to a return to Chelsea

Bild explains that joining the Catalan bench is at most an option for TT. The former PSG coach has another goal in mind. Indeed, he wants to return to the Premier League. Initially, he had the idea of ​​settling down at Manchester United, where an interesting new project was being set up. But the German publication explains that he is quite pessimistic since he believes that Erik ten Hag will remain in office. For this reason, he established a new priority. And this one is surprising. Indeed, Tuchel is closely monitoring what is happening at Chelsea, where Mauricio Pochettino is criticized from all sides.

Thanked like a mess, TT is obviously not resentful. He is not closed to the idea of ​​returning to Todd Boehly, who obviously understood that his club was doing better with Tuchel on his bench. This lead therefore has weight in his eyes, he who has the advantage of knowing the London house well. On the other hand, TT has already put two options aside, namely taking control of a selection and joining a Saudi club. He wants to work with his assistants on a daily basis in a club and is not interested in money. He wants to coach a high-level team and impose his style on it. What he failed to do in Munich.
