Tuchel candidate at Spain club
Athletic Bilbao is looking for a new coach for the coming season. Thomas Tuchel, also courted by FC Bayern, is considered a candidate.
Thomas Tuchel has been without a club since last summer, but the former coach of Borussia Dortmund has no shortage of interested parties.
The Spanish sports newspaper AS reports that Athletic Bilbao intends to hire the 44-year-old to succeed coach Jose Angel Ziganda.
Ziganda and the Basques are in 13th place in the Primera Division and, after their defeat in the UEFA Europa League against Olympique Marseille, they have no further arguments in favour of staying in the long term.
Tuchel has recently been in talks with English clubs Southampton and Everton, as well as the Chinese representative. The rumours of Jupp Heynckes’ commitment as heir to FC Bayern also remain persistent.
In case Tuchel cancels, Bilbao still has Asier Garitano in sight. Garitano is currently still under contract with league competitor CD Leganes.
