Thomas Tuchel remains betting favorite to land Man United post this summer after UEFA Champions League exit

German head coach, Thomas Tuchel still remains the bookies favorite to land the post at Manchester United this summer – if the club relieve Erik ten Hag of his duties, despite guiding Bayern Munich to their first trophy-less season since 2011/2012.

Thomas Tuchel, who is expected to leave the Bundesliga side at the end of their domestic season, watched on helplessly from the sideline at the Santiago Bernabeu last night, with Real Madrid scoring twice through late goals from Joselu, to book a Wembley final against Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League.

And on the cusp of a third competition final appearance, Thomas Tuchel’s side took a second half lead through an inspired substitution, with Alfonso Davies netting with a splendid effort.

However, failing to sure up the ship for the 90 minutes, Bayern were put to the sword late on with former Stoke City forward, Joselu scoring a late brace to send the capital side to a Wembley meeting against Bundesliga side, Dortmund.

And despite their late exit, Thomas Tuchel remains the current 6/4 betting favorite to land the Man United job this summer, if the new INEOS-backed regime elects to sack manager ten Hag amid a faltering season in his second campaign in charge. 

Thomas Tuchel favorite to take over at Man United

Fans and punters alike can bet on a slew of candidates to land the Man United job this summer with the departure of ten Hag, as well as take part in their favorite casino games and other slots at – with the sport sure to take in massive audiences ahead of EURO 2024 this year to boot. 

Beyond Thomas Tuchel, United have also been heavily linked with current England national team head coach, Gareth Southgate, much to the dismay of the majority of the fanbase it has to be said.

Failing to guide the national side to any major competition victories, Southgate, a former Middlesbrough manager may have his last chance to do so this summer at EURO 2024 – with the side tipped heavily to finally land the European championship following 2021 heartbreak on home soil against Italy.

Furthermore, the side has been linked almost all season long with the pursuit of former Brighton & Hove Albion and Chelsea boss, Graham Potter, who has yet to return to football since his unceremonious departure from Stamford Bridge.

Another unpopular choice amongst the Old Trafford faithful, Potter reportedly turned down an approach from ten Hag’s former side, Ajax this week, who held the British coach in high regard, following a tumultuous season in the Eredivisie.

Managing back-to-back promotions with Ipswich Town following his departure from United as well as Michael Carrick from former coach, Ole Gunnar Solksjaear’s coaching team, the highly-touted, Kieran McKenna has also been sounded out as a potential candidate to take the helm, albeit holding a significant outsiders chance according to the bookies.

Akin to McKenna, Sporting Lisbon head coach, Ruben Amorin, who had been linked with the dugouts at both Liverpool, and West Ham United in recent months, is also considered an outsider when it comes to replacing ten Hag – who will hope to more than likely save his future with just three Premier League games remaining, and a FA Cup final against rivals, Manchester City.
