Tuchel dismisses reports linking him with United job

Thomas Tuchel has dismissed speculation linking him with the manager’s job at Manchester United.

It follows reports that the uncertainty over Chelsea’s future could result in the German leaving Stamford Bridge.

Asked for his reaction to being touted as a candidate for the United role, Tuchel responded: “Actually, no reaction at all.

“Do you feel me less committed to the club or less involved in the club in my situation? I think absolutely not.

“I have told you many times that I love to be here and love to work for Chelsea.

“This club has everything that it needs to make me happy.”

Speaking at a press conference on Friday morning, Tuchel also said he was hopeful that a takeover of Chelsea would happen sooner rather than later.
