Thomas Tuchel admits he is open to international manager job after Chelsea sacking amid England links | The Sun
THOMAS TUCHEL has admitted that he is open to taking a job in international management.
The German has been a free agent since being sacked by Chelsea in September.
Tuchel, 49, has been linked with the England job as a potential successor to Gareth Southgate.
And he does see the allure of the international game.
Asked if he'd take charge of a national team by The Hindu Times, he said: "Yeah, why not? I would, I would. I did not give too much thought to it until now.
"But I would consider if it is the right team and if it has the potential to win trophies like the World Cup and the Euros."

Tuchel was then asked more specifically about the Three Lions.
He added: "I see where you are going. But I think England has a good coach right now.
"The team is very strong and very talented… as for everything else, I will not comment."
Southgate is under contract with the FA until 2024, but has come under pressure after England's dismal Nations League campaign.
