Whoever the new Newcastle United manager will be, it won’t be Thomas Tuchel

St James Park

Reported Newcastle United managerial candidate Thomas Tuchel is appointed the new Borussia Dortmund coach.

John Carver may be in charge of Newcastle United at the moment, but there is no guarantee that he will remain in his position next season.

That’s because the Englishman, who was appointed the Newcastle head coach following the departure of Alan Pardew to Crystal Palace in the middle of the 2014-15 campaign, has a contract until the end of the season.

One of the names who has been linked with the managerial position at the Magpies next season is Thomas Tuchel, who was the in charge of Bundesliga club Mainz from 2009 until 2014.

According to The Chronicle, Tuchel is one of the candidates Newcastle are looking at, but they are not going to make any decision until the end of the season.

However, it now seems that the Magpies have missed the boat, as the 41-year-old has been appointed the new coach of Borussia Dortmund.

The German club announced just a few minutes ago that the German will succeed Jurgen Klopp at the end of the season, with the latter having already decided to leave Signal Iduna Park.

Newcastle will now have one fewer candidate to look at in the summer.
