Tuchel meets with Man United owner and pitches to replace ten Hag

Thomas Tuchel reportedly met with new Man United owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe last week over potentially replacing manager Erik ten Hag.

United are currently reviewing Ten Hag’s standing at the club after what was a miserable campaign up until their FA Cup final triumph over Man City.  

While Ten Hag has continuously grasped for the mitigation of a debilitating injury pile-up when things have gone against United, they have still performed below the expected standards.

An eighth-place finish in the Premier League was their lowest in 34 years and they ended up with a negative goal difference – something totally unthinkable just a few years ago.

Their European campaign was a complete failure and ultimately had Ten Hag not found salvation in winning the FA Cup the debate over whether he should be sacked would be settled.

Falk wrote on Twitter: ‘there was a meeting in Monaco last Tuesday between Thomas Tuchel and the new Manchester United shareholder Jim Ratcliffe.

‘Tuchel revealed his plans if he were to take over the coaching position in the event of Erik ten Hag being fired.

‘Tuchel is said to have explained to the United co-owner how he could get United’s sporting problems like Sancho and Mason Mount back on track.

‘Tuchel mentioned Antonio Rüdiger as example that he had already succeeded in the past in getting Players with great potential back to top performance.
