Tuchel shocked to be linked with crumbling United

Manchester United (Manchester United) are reportedly eyeing Thomas Tuchel (51), who is stepping down as Bayern Munich manager at the end of the season, as their next manager.

“United have made contact with Tuchel as they look for a replacement for Eric ten Hach (54),” the Metro reported on April 22nd.

It’s a bit of a shocker. Tuchel hasn’t led Munich to the Bundesliga title this season. A streak of 11 consecutive titles was broken.

Tuchel, who took over midway through last season, came close to winning the Bundesliga title in 2022-2023, but lost it to Leverkusen early this season. They are now focusing on their last hope, the UEFA Champions League (UCL). However, Tuchel and Munich have already decided to part ways by mutual consent.

On February 21, Munich announced on the club’s official website that “Tuchel will stay with the club until this summer. His contract was originally until June 2025. However, we have mutually agreed to terminate the contract in June 2024,” the club announced.

United approached Tuchel because they were in urgent need of a managerial change.

This season, United finished bottom of their UCL group and failed to reach the last 16 of the Carabao Cup. This pales in comparison to last season’s third-place league finish and Carabao Cup win.

The league results are not good either. 안전놀이터 추천 They’re currently in seventh place with 50 points. The fight for fourth place is effectively over. They reached the FA Cup final on May 22, but were narrowly beaten on penalties by second-place Coventry City in the semifinals. They were criticized for reaching the final in “humiliating fashion.

It”s not as if United have been cheap in the transfer market. They brought in the likes of Andre Onana, Mason Mount, Sophien Amrabat, and Sergio Reguilon, as well as young striker Rasmus Höjlund. The total amount of money spent on Hojelun, Onana, and Mount alone is around 300 billion won.

As a result, it is widely believed that Van Gaal will hang up his boots at the end of the season.

“United have approached Tuchel to replace Van Gaal,” Metro reported, citing sources in Germany. The news came shortly after the FA Cup tie between United and Coventry City. Managing United would be a dream job for Tuchel,” the report said.

The Metro added: “United have been in contact with Tuchel and the club’s owner, Sir Jim Ratcliffe, holds him in high regard. There are also reports that United have asked Tuchel to ‘commit for next season’ if they sack Van Gaal.”

If he does indeed head to United, Tuchel will face Son Heung-min (Tottenham) as a Premier League opponent next season.
