After a disappointing Nations League campaign in which England suffered relegation, Gareth Southgate has received a lot of criticism from supporters.
If England fail to make their desired impact at the World Cup in Qatar, it’s possible that Southgate could leave which could provide an opening for Tuchel.
During his tenure as Chelsea manager, Tuchel won the Champions League in 2021 as well as the Club World Cup and the UEFA Super Cup.
In total, Tuchel managed Chelsea for 60 games, of which he won 60, drew 24 and lost 16.
Before becoming Chelsea boss, he managed Paris Saint-Germain, Borussia Dortmund and Mainz.
