Thomas Tuchel has been backed to join Premier League club West Ham after he was sacked as Chelsea boss.
The Hammers haven’t made the best start to the season and Stan Collymore believes Tuchel could replace David Moyes as West Ham manager.
Despite winning the Champions League with Chelsea, Collymore doesn’t see Tuchel being appointed as manager of a top club in Europe.
“He’s obviously somewhere in between either end of that spectrum – and that’s why I don’t see him automatically getting one of the big European jobs anytime soon,” Collymore said in his Sunday People column.
“Maybe in Italy, a Juventus or one of the Milan clubs might be looking to make a change during the World Cup and they will be interested.
“But he can’t hang around too long for fear of becoming yesterday’s man and 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.”
