Ex-Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel offers new hint that he would be interested in a job in England

Before Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel hinted that he would be interested in becoming Englandmanage the national team after 2022 World Football Championship.

Chelsea sacked Tuchel on September 7 after the Blues lost 1-0 to Dynamo Zagreb in the Champions League.

The German has enjoyed huge success at Stamford Bridge, taking them to the UEFA Champions League in 2021, the FIFA World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup in 2022.

The former Chelsea manager was asked if he would consider international management, to which he replied (via Metro):

“Yes, why not? I will, I will. I didn’t think too much of it until now.”

The German explained that he will only consider the right country and that they need to be contenders to win the titles:

“But I will consider whether it is the right team and has the potential to win titles like the World Cup and the Euro.”

The Three Lions are currently being coached by Gareth Southgate and are heading to Qatar for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.

Southgate has led England to the semi-finals of the 2018 World Cup and the final of the 2021 European Championship.

However, the performance of the Three Lions in the UEFA Nations League recently left many things to be admired.

Southgate has been criticized for his decision-making regarding his tactics and formation.

The former Middlesbrough boss picked an out of form Harry Maguire and dropped the impressive James Maddison from his recent Nations League squad.

He finished last in Group C of League 1 in the Nations League with no wins, 3 draws and the most losses in 6 matches.

They have only scored two goals without penalties during a poor campaign, and questions have been raised about Southgate’s position as manager of the Three Lions.

His contract with England expires in 2024, having only signed a new one last November.
