Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel is on Manchester United’s managerial shortlist amid the crisis at Stamford Bridge.

Tuchel’s Chelsea contract runs until 2024 but the German tactician may be unsettled at Chelsea following happenings at the club.

Tuchel has won the Champions League and Club World Cup since arriving at Stamford Bridge.

It is clear that if Tuchel was to take the job, he would have to deal with a lot of big personalities. In an interview with BT Sport, Tuchel explained his managerial style.

He said: “They are also guys, once standing as a six-year-old with a ball at the beach or on the street. So find what drives this guy, find this little guy in the superstar and then take the right approach.

“Of course be straight, be honest. I want to have a connection with my players and give guys responsibility.

“It is not possible that players just take care of themselves – when you’re a big player you must take care of the dressing room. You can be close and you have to speak honestly with each other and I try to be friendly, but not to be friends so this is maybe the thin line that you have to create.”
