Sack Southgate. Hire Tuchel: Fans call for England boss to be REPLACED by Tuchel


Fans on social media have called for former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel to replace Gareth Southgate as England manager.

Southgate is under growing pressure after England were relegated from Tier A of the Nations League, following their 1-0 defeat to Italy on Friday night.

With Tuchel recently becoming available, following his sacking from Chelsea earlier this month, fans are suggesting the ‘cup specialist’ can bring home glory in Qatar later this year if appointed England boss.

‘I tell you what. If Tuchel took over this England team for the World Cup they would have a really chance,’ one fan wrote. ‘He knows all the players so well and the right players for his system which is so good in cup competitions.’

Another bluntly wrote: ‘Sack Southgate. Hire Tuchel. England become good. Simple.’

Others made reference to the German’s impressive trophy haul across his career by saying: ‘Sack Southgate & get cup specialist Tuchel in for the World Cup’.

‘Hey @England, it’s not too late to bin of Southgate & get Thomas Tuchel in,’ wrote one fan who tagged the official national team Twitter account.

The Three Lions are now winless in their last five games, their longest drought in eight years.

Criticism on this scale will be alien for a manager who has taken England to the latter stages of the both of the major tournaments he has led them in, but the Three Lions’ recent form has been concerning.

If they fail to beat Germany on Monday, England will go into the World Cup having not won a game since March.
