Man Utd have major Thomas Tuchel concern despite being in frame to replace Erik ten Hag

Figures at Manchester United have expressed concern over Thomas Tuchel potentially clashing with the club’s leadership if he’s appointed to replace Erik ten Hag.

Tuchel is set to leave Bayern Munich at the end of this season, despite the German giants being one game away from the Champions League final. In February, with the Bundesliga title slipping away from the Bavarians’ grasp for the first time since 2012, Bayern announced that they’d reached an agreement with the former Chelsea boss to part ways, making him available this summer.

That’s when United could be in the market for a manager, as Ten Hag’s position remains under intense scrutiny after a miserable second campaign at the helm. New co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe and his INEOScolleagues are currently weighing up Ten Hag’s future and assessing replacement candidates, with Tuchel among them.

According to the Times, however, there’re concern about the German’s history of clashing with his superiors at previous clubs. Tuchel’s five-year spell with Mainz came to an end in 2014 following a dispute with directors over transfer funds, while he was sacked by Borussia Dortmund three years later after a breakdown of trust between himself and the club’s board.
