Is ex-Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel joining Kerala Blasters? | Fans speculate his visit in Kochi

Xtra Time Web Desk: Ex Chelsea Manager Thomas Tuchel is in India now. The former Champions League winning manager was spotted at the Kochi airport on Tuesday, leading to speculation on social media whether he will land a contract with ISL franchise Kerala Blasters or not. There is no clarity though why the former Borussia Dortmund is in India.

Tuchel was sacked as Chelsea manager about a month back. He was removed from his post after an inconsistent start to this season in which the Blues won just three of their first six Premier League games. His final match at Stamford Bridge was the solitary goal loss to Dinamo Zagreb in the Champions League.

Tuchel, who is yet to take up a coaching role is speculated to be linked with Blasters on social media, although there is no confirmation from either party.

Under Tuchel, Blues not only lifted the UEFA Champions League but also won the UEFA Super Cup and FIFA Club World Cup trophies. Apart from Chelsea, Tuchel also managed Borussia Dortmund and Paris Saint-Germain.
