Thomas Tuchel has been sacked as head coach of Borussia Dortmund, and this has led to increased speculation that he could take over as manager Arsenal.
Dortmund finished third in this season’s Bundesliga, won the DFK Pokal and made it through to the quarter finals of the Champions League, but this was apparently not enough for Tuchel to keep his job. Tuchel had been in the job since 2015, taking over from Jurgen Klopp.
In a statement, Dortmund denied that Tuchel’s departure had anything to do with a recent disagreement between him, CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke and sports director Michael Zorc.
However, this move has led to speculation that Tuchel could now take over at Arsenal. The Gooners won the FA Cup at the weekend, but finished outside of the Champions League spot for the first time in 20 years.
Current Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger – who has faced calls from fans to quit this season – had a meeting with the Gooners’ owner Stan Kroenke yesterday to discuss his future, but no announcement on that has been made.
It is known that a 2-year contact offer had been made to Wenger earlier in the season, but the Frenchman was yet to sign it.
