Thomas Tuchel prepares for a big job as he learns a new language.
Thomas Tuchel is aiming for the position at Real Madrid. In addition, he is currently using his time away from the game to learn Spanish in preparation for it.
Since being let go by Chelsea in September after less than two years in charge at Stamford Bridge, the 49-year-old has been jobless.
The German made significant progress during his brief tenure as manager, winning the Champions League, the UEFA Super Cup, the Club World Cup, and reaching the FA Cup and Carabao Cup finals.
He couldn’t establish a working relationship with Chelsea’s new owners and had disagreements with several players. Graham Potter eventually took his place after being fired as a result.
Since leaving west London, the former manager of Paris Saint-Germain and Borussia Dortmund is always in link with other positions. He is, however, holding out for the chance, which might be in the capital of Spain.
According to the German magazine BILD, Tuchel is very interested in the job at the Santiago Bernabeu. Furthermore, he is making good use of his time by studying the language.
At Real Madrid, Carlo Ancelotti is facing mounting pressure. Real Madrid is currently in second place in La Liga, but they are nine points behind longtime rivals Barcelona, and their title hopes are in jeopardy.
In their matchup on Sunday at Camp Nou, the two Spanish powerhouses could determine Ancelotti’s future—perhaps not right away, but eventually.
The illustrious Italian manager still has a chance to keep Real from losing its Champions League season. In the second leg of their round of 16 matches on Wednesday, Real Madrid defeated Liverpool and advanced to the quarterfinals.
If Real could lose this advantage, Ancelotti would undoubtedly lose his job soon.
Tuchel might be interested in managing Real, but he isn’t the only candidate to succeed Ancelotti. However, other names are on the list as potential replacements for Ancelotti include Xabi Alonso, Mauricio Pochettino, and Raul.
