REPORT: Potential Future Barcelona President Wants Thomas Tuchel at Club

Tuchel Barcelona

Thomas Tuchel could soon be appearing in the dugout for Barcelona according to Christian Falk, with the reporter claiming that a potential future president of the club wants him to lead the Catalan giants.

Potential Barcelona President Wants Thomas Tuchel

Ronald Koeman is the Current Barcelona Boss

There is set to be a new election for the next president of Barcelona on the 24th January 2021 and the outcome of that election could mean that Tuchel ends up in Spain.

The current boss of the club is Ronald Koeman, who has been in charge for less than a year so far. Despite a 46.2% win percentage so far (and with the club having not lost any of their last five games) they currently sit in 6th place in the La Liga table. They’re a full ten points behind current league leaders Atletico Madrid, who also have a game in hand over Barca.

Lionel Messi Wanted Out of the Club

With key player Lionel Messi claiming he wanted out of the club in the summer and with the Catalan giants having already sacked numerous managers in the pursuit of greatness, one of the presidential candidates is believed to be interested in bringing Tuchel to the club.

Whether it is an immediate appointment (and whether the candidate actually gets elected) remains to be seen but he is certainly high on the list of potential future managers for the La Liga side.

Tuchel Experienced Enough to Manage Barcelona

Tuchel has a wealth of experience in European football already. He’s managed Paris Saint-Germain, with who he finished second in the Champions League and also won the Ligue 1 title twice and Borussia Dortmund, where he won the DFB-Pokal.

Having also managed Mainz 05 and FC Augsburg 2, the German side’s reserve team, it means that he has a lot of experience to draw on and is more than qualified to be able to manage Barcelona if given the chance.

It means that the presidential election in Barcelona does carry some weight – it wouldn’t only potentially change the current presidential dynamic but the managerial one too, according to reports.
