Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has dismissed any reports linking him to the Manchester United job next season. Despite the off-field issues, Tuchel claims that he has a number of reasons to stay at the club. His role has come into question after their owner Roman Abramovic was sanctioned following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. Chelsea is third in the Premier League and is set to face Real Madrid in the quarter-finals of the Champions League.
“Actually no reaction at all [to the rumors]. Do you feel me less committed to the club or less involved in the club? Absolutely not,” Thomas Tuchel said about reports linking him to the Manchester United job. “I have said many times that I love to be here and this club has everything it needs to make me happy. There is no need. We have plenty of reasons to stay at the moment. I do my best and I’ve felt the support here in the club since day one. That makes me feel safe and then I do my best to play my role and push things forward.”
“I think it is realistic in that if you are Manchester United why wouldn’t you ask that question?” Jamie Carragher said. “Unfortunately with the situation that Chelsea find themselves in, other clubs will be looking at their situation in terms of players or managers going forward, that’s the nature of the beast. He’s one of the best managers in world football and Manchester United is looking for one but I think he’s come out and said that he’s committed to the club and I’m sure that’s what he’s got to say. But there are uncertain times for Chelsea because you don’t know what the owner is going to be towards the end of the season.”
