I'm a bit wary of signing of signing Tuchel, he's won nothing and guided Germany's second best team to 2nd and 3rd positions in the league. He seems to be dining out on getting Dortmund to the quarter finals of the CL, other than that I really can't see why he's so special?
A lot of our fans calling for him is reminding me of when everyone suddenly thought Sandro was going to be signing of the season, without actually knowing much about him.
He won the German Cup last season...
Yes they were the second best team so can't look and think did brilliantly, but he was competing against a Bayern team in his first year who breaking records around points and size of wins etc. He got 78 points in his first season which was more than the total when Klopp first won the league at Dortmund and would have won the league both seasons Dortmund won it under Klopp. Yes he took over a team in a better position than Klopp but it was a lot harder competition with where Pep had got Bayern and the number of points they gained.
Last season their level did drop for sure but he is someone that his record in his career so far is very good. He took over a newly promoted team at Mainz and in his time there qualified for Europe twice, finished 5th as a highest position. Earnt the second best job in Germany they were very good in his first season and were pushing bayern for the title until the final few weeks and his record finished 2nd first season and lost on penalties in the German cup final to Bayern then 3rd the next and won the cup.
How his ideas translate into England can't be answered but his career record is good, his teams have been attacking and scored a lot of goals and everything that has been written about him has always talked about how he always had a very big focus on becoming a top coach. If he was interested which I still doubt, I would be very disappointed if he wasnt one of the leading candidates.
