Sacked Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel ‘could be back by October’ in huge job

Former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel could be back in management by October.

The German, who was sacked by the Blues earlier this month owing to a poor start to the season, has been linked to a return to Germany by the way of Bayern Munich.

Bild claims that Tuchel is the man that the Bundesliga giants will turn to should their current coach Julian Nagelsmann get the chop.

The Bavarians have started the season poorly and their 1-0 loss to Augsburg over the weekend made it four league games without a win for the reigning champions.

And now reports suggest that if results don’t pick up soon, Bayern will look to former Borussia Dortmund coach Tuchel, who's been without a club for a few weeks.

In fact, Bild state that Bayern may dismiss the 35-year-old Nagelsmann he if suffers further poor results during October – leaving the door open for out-of-work Tuchel to make a quick return to the game.

The club’s CEO Oliver Kahn, though, has publicly backed Nagelsmann despite the rumours linking Tuchel to the top job in Germany. Kahn told Sky Germany: “We are not dealing with any other coaches now. We are totally convinced of Julian.

“Of course, we are all dissatisfied, in a bad mood. We have to get to the bottom of it all. And assume that as soon as it starts again against Leverkusen, we will and must attack fully.

“Perhaps one or the other has taken hold of the belief that you could do the Bundesliga on the side. But that’s not the case.”

Tuchel earned Chelsea their second-ever Champions League in 2021 – but the change of ownership and the club’s slow start to the new season saw him become one of the first managerial casualties of the Premier League season.

Speaking after his side’s loss to Augsburg, Nagelsmann accused his players of having a “laissez-faire” in their attacking approach. “When I look at the statistics, we should have won… We could have tried simple things to play into the space behind (Augsburg’s defence), but we played very laissez-faire in the final third,” Nagelsmann said.

“The trend doesn’t bode well. I’m thinking about myself, about the situation – about everything.”
