Reports: Ex Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has turned down two jobs since leaving Chelsea FC

Thomas Tuchel has reportedly rejected job offers from two unnamed Premier League clubs since his departure from Chelsea.

Tuchel has been out of work since September 7, when he was sacked following Chelsea’s defeat to Dinamo Zagreb.

According to The Telegraph, in the ensuing period Tuchel has been approached by two Premier League clubs but he has turned them down,

The 49-year-old was also reportedly offered the Bayer Leverkusen job but rejected it, with Xabi Alonso eventually being appointed instead.

A recent report from BILD suggested that the German would be open to becoming England manager if it became available.

After a disappointing Nations League campaign in which England suffered relegation, Gareth Southgate received much criticism from supporters.

If England fail to make the desired impact at the World Cup in Qatar then it is possible that Southgate could depart, which may provide an opening for Tuchel.

During his time as Chelsea manager Tuchel won the Champions League in 2021 as well as the Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.

In total, Tuchel was in charge of Chelsea for 60 games, of which he won 60, drew 24 and lost 16.

Prior to being Chelsea boss, he managed Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Mainz.
