Thomas Tuchel Has “Rejected His First Job Offer” Since Being Fired by Chelsea.
Former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has turned down his first job offer since being fired by the Premier League club.
Tuchel was fired in a surprise move last month, just hours after losing 1-0 to Dinamo Zagreb, with the club’s new owners insisting at the time that “it is the right time to make this transition.”
Graham Potter was quickly brought in, but he has only overseen two games due to a string of match postponements and the international break.
Tuchel issued a statement shortly after his dismissal, expressing “devastation that my time at Chelsea has come to an end.”
He continued, saying: “The pride and joy I felt as a member of the team that won the Champions League and the Club World Cup will live with me for the rest of my life.
I am honored to have been a part of this club’s history, and the memories of the last 19 months will remain with me forever.”
Tuchel has been offered a quick return to management in his native Germany, with Bayer Leverkusen, who have won just one of their first eight Bundesliga games.
However, according to Sport1, Tuchel is not interested in the offer and has ruled himself out of contention. Former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is now a possibility.
