Aston Villa: Thomas Tuchel not interested in becoming manager

Former Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel isn’t interested in becoming the new Aston Villa coach, according to an update from reliable journalist Matt Law.

Villa’s woeful 3-0 defeat at the hands of Fulham proved to be Steven Gerrard’s last game as manager, with the 42-year-old sacked shortly afterwards.

The club will now no doubt be on the lookout to make a quickfire appointment to replace Gerrard at Villa Park, with a host of names already thrown into the hat.


Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Frank have already been linked and Tuchel has even been touted as a potential candidate.

Taking to Twitter, Law revealed that the German would immediately say ‘no’ to Villa:

“Any attempt by Aston Villa to speak with Thomas Tuchel over their vacant job will be met with a polite ‘no’. He’s not interested – even if big wages and money on offer.”
