Ex-Aston Villa striker Stan Collymore believes former Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel may consider joining a club outside the Premier League’s traditional “Big Six” for his next role in management.
Collymore claims West Ham manager David Moyes, Villa Head Coach Steven Gerrard and Newcastle’s Eddie Howe may have to watch their backs now the German is out of management:
“I wonder if his most likely destination will be one of our B+ clubs, such as Newcastle, West Ham or Aston Villa. Eddie Howe, David Moyes and Steven Gerrard could well be the ones looking over their shoulders and their clubs could afford to pay Tuchel £8m-£10m a year.”
Tuchel is a Champions League winning coach so there is no doubt that the Hammers’ board would be interested in hiring him if they were looking for a new manager.
However, Moyes has been given a lot of backing by the club in the summer transfer window and it would be a huge shock if he was sacked anytime soon, considering the excellent job he has done since returning to the London Stadium.
Of course, results and performances will need to improve. Four points from six league matches is not what supporters had hoped for at the start of the season.
