Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel set for immediate Premier League return

Thomas Tuchel set for Premier League return with Chelsea rival his dream

Thomas Tuchel is reportedly keen to return to the Premier League after he leaves his role as Bayern Munich manager, with Manchester United his dream job in England.

The 50-year-old only moved to Bayern last year but he is set to leave the club at the end of this season, with the German giants announcing the decision on Wednesday.

Bayern CEO Jan-Christian Dreesen confirmed in a statement, which read: ‘In an open, good conversation we came to the decision to mutually end our collaboration in the summer.

‘Our goal is to carry out a sporting realignment with a new coach for the 2024/25 season. Until then, every individual in the club is expressly challenged to achieve the maximum possible in the Champions League and the Bundesliga.

‘I also explicitly hold the team responsible. Especially in the Champions League, we are convinced that after the 0-1 defeat in the first leg at Lazio Rome, we will advance to the quarter-finals in the second leg in our fully occupied Allianz Arena with our fans behind us.’

Tuchel added: ‘We have agreed that we will end our collaboration after this season. Until then, I and my coaching team will of course continue to do everything we can to ensure maximum success.’

Bild’s Christian Falk reports that Tuchel wants to have another crack at the Premier League, in what would be his second stint after being in charge at Chelsea from 2021-22.

He won the Champions League with the Blues but was a casualty of the regime change at Stamford Bridge, replaced by Graham Potter after his sacking in September 2022.

The Bild report states that Manchester United is a job that has always interested him, but obviously that would mean Erik ten Hag being dismissed before that could happen.

While that might not seem particularly likely, there is interest in Tuchel from England, with West Ham reportedly keen to try and tempt him back to London.

TalkSPORT report that the Hammers would love the opportunity to hire the German and replace David Moyes with him this summer, although after working at Dortmund, PSG, Chelsea and Bayern Munich, he may not fancy it.
