Thomas Tuchel reacted with humor to a statement made by Ralf Rangnick during his presentation to the press.
While he has only managed German clubs so far, Ralf Rangnick will discover the Premier League at the head of Manchester United. But the German technician revealed this Friday during his press conference that he could have arrived in England at the beginning of the year, since he says he was contacted by Chelsea ” in February “. “They only offered me a four-month interim and no prospect behind”, he explains to justify his refusal.
This statement from Rangnick is astonishing because, in February, Thomas Tuchel had already been named head of the Blues, and the post was therefore not vacant. “Maybe my managers saw the 0-0 against Wolverhampton and thought I was doing anything, and that we had to bring in Ralf for four months, Thomas Tuchel laughed when Rangnick’s words were reported to him. He must have been wrong in the dates. Finally, I hope ! ” It is probable, indeed.
