Ex-Chelsea boss Tuchel and former Man Utd chief Rangnick linked with Germany manager and director jobs

, Ex-Chelsea boss Tuchel and former Man Utd chief Rangnick linked with Germany manager and director jobs

FORMER Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel could replace Hansi Flick as Germany boss, according to reports.

The World Cup giants crashed out in the group stage in Qatar, four years after suffering the same fate in Russia.

Thomas Tuchel was sacked by Chelsea back in September

Ralf Rangnick is the current manager of Austria

On Monday, Oliver Bierhoff, the director of the national team, resigned following the nightmare campaign.

And Flick’s job is hanging in the balance, with the ex-Bayern Munich manager releasing a rather damning statement following Bierhoff’s departure.

He said: “My coaching team and I are finding it difficult at the moment to imagine how the gap created by Oliver’s departure can be closed professionally and personally.”

If Flick, 57, is sacked or chooses to resign from his post, Kicker understand that ex-Chelsea man Tuchel is one of the frontrunners to replace him.

The German coach, 49, was dismissed by the Blues back in September after a string of poor results.

But overall he was a success at Stamford Bridge, winning the Champions League less than six months into his spell at the club.

He could be joined in the Germany set-up by ex-Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick.

Rangnick, 64, left Old Trafford after a short stint as interim head coach last season, taking a managerial job with the Austria national team.


But he is now being linked with replacing Bierhoff as the Germans’ director of football.

Rangnick was Tuchel’s head coach at Ulm in 1997 where the pair formed a relationship.

Three years later, he then gave Tuchel a role as a youth coach at Stuttgart.

Another candidate linked with Germany’s sporting director role is Hertha Berlin’s Fredi Bobic.
