Thomas Tuchel has been unemployed since his dismissal at Chelsea in late summer. Despite the 2021 Champions League win, the German coach was no longer able to stay in London due to disagreements with new owner Todd Boehly. Now the coach is ready for a new employer.
As the former coach of Mainz 05, Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea FC, Thomas Tuchel is one of the best-known coaches in European football. However, the successful coach has not yet worked in La Liga. According to Sport-Bild information, however, Tuchel sees his future right there. The 49-year-old recently spent three weeks in India, where he pursued a self-discovery cure. He will soon move into a domicile in Ibiza, which also suggests that his future could lie in Spain. After stints in Germany, France and England, La Liga would be the fourth top league in which Tuchel could work as a coach. Since he was able to win titles with Dortmund, Paris and Chelsea, a title in Spain would be number four, so to speak. That would put him in the select circle of Paul Clement and Giovanni Mauro, who have racked up titles in four leagues, albeit as assistant and fitness trainers respectively. Only coaching legend Carlo Ancelotti has achieved the feat of collecting titles in all five top leagues. In order to catch up with the current real coach, Tuchel would also have to work and win in Italy.
However, it cannot be assumed that Tuchel will particularly reach for such records. A La Liga post also has a certain appeal. His chances aren't that bad either. Carlo Ancelotti is only under contract with Real Madrid until 2024 and will probably end his coaching career then. There have also been rumors about Diego Simeone in recent weeks that Atletico is slowly but surely striving for change. Tuchel already rejected an offer from FC Sevilla in the fall, but at the time he was simply not ready for it a new job. According to Sport-Bild information, he is now busy learning Spanish in order to prepare himself perfectly for his upcoming task – wherever it will be.
