Thomas Tuchel rejects job offer from LaLiga club

Former Chelsea boss, Thomas Tuchel, has turned down an approach from Sevilla this month, it has been revealed.

Before hiring Jorge Sampaoli, the LaLiga club made a move for Tuchel, BILD reports.

Sevilla sounded out Tuchel before sacking Julen Lopetegui, but the German turned them down as he is looking for a “bigger challenge”.

Tuchel was sacked by Chelsea last month following an inconsistent start to the new season which saw the team win just three of their first six Premier League games.

Blues co-owner, Todd Boehly, replaced the German with ex-Brighton manager, Graham Potter.

Sevilla have since hired Sampaoli before parting with Lopetegui a fortnight ago.
