Thomas Tuchel rejects West Ham

German gaffer Thomas Tuchel has allegedly rejected an opportunity from West Ham United to become their manager. Tuchel was sounded out by the Hammers board as a potential candidate to replace the under pressure Slaven Bilic, but he has said no to the offer to move to the London Stadium.

West Ham have had a tough start to the new season. While one could argue it was due to the fact that they played their first few games away from home (owing to Athletics commitments for the London Stadium), WHUFC fan blogs like this one have indicated that Bilic’s tactics have sometimes left much to be desired- for example playing Javier Hernandez on the wing instead of utilising his real potential at centre forward.

West Ham are currently third from bottom in the league standings and after their weekend loss to Tottenham Hotspur, the upcoming fixture against Swansea is being talked about as a “must win” for Bilic.

Other candidates being considered by the West Ham board allegedly include Huddersfield Town’s David Wagner, Fulham’s Slavisa Jokanovic and even Napoli’s Maurizio Sarri (although few would expect him to move given the Partenopei’s stunning start to the season)
