Chelsea sacked Thomas Tuchel, who last played against Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League, in September after a difficult start to the season.
The German manager enjoyed hero status at Chelsea, having led the team to victory in the 2021 Champions League, and he was also part of the club during his time as owner.
The new ownership group, led by Todd Boehly, invested heavily over the summer and spent the most of any club in Europe, and the Blues signed a total of nine contracts.
However, Tuchel was sacked shortly after the end of the transfer window and replaced by Graham Potter, who joined from Brighton to manage the team until the end of the season.
Tuchel offered chance to return to management straightaway:
Tuchel has now been offered the chance to return to the manager’s job as Bayer Leverkusen consider the possibility of bringing in a new manager after problems at the start of the season.
Leverkusen are in 17th place in the Bundesliga, four points off the bottom, and last time out they suffered a 4-0 loss to reigning champions Bayern Munich.
Their current manager Gerardo Seoane is under pressure and after the club’s CEO Fernando Carro spoke about a possible decision this weekend, it seems possible that he will be sacked: “We are not unprepared!”
According to Sport1, Bayer Leverkusen approached Tuchel about the possibility of a takeover, but the former Chelsea boss is said to have rejected their offer.
Tuchel may feel that his ambitions do not match Leverkusen’s, as the club is struggling and may not play in the Champions League next season if it does not improve significantly.
Tuchel has previously been successful at Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, so he probably wants to be in a place where he has a better chance of winning trophies.
Leverkusen haven’t won many trophies recently, which may put Tuchel off, so it will be interesting to see where he ends up in the coming months.
