According to Sky Sports, former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel has refused to rule himself out of the running for the vacant Everton manager’s job, but Toffees fans are divided on whether he would be a good appointment.
The Bundesliga giants sacked the 44-year-old at the end of last season despite the fact that he led the club to their first trophy in three years, and he is still highly-regarded as a coach across Europe.
Sky Sports says that while the German manager had been reluctant to consider a team that wasn’t competing in the Champions League, he would be open to an approach from the Merseyside outfit after they relieved Ronald Koeman of his duties on Monday.
Everton supporters were quick to have their say on the news via social media, and they were divided with their opinions.
While some said “just get him”, others fear he is “just another Koeman”.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Just get him Everton.

I really don't see all the fuss another foreign manager very much like koeman who again probably won't get Everton.

Tuchel is not the right man for Everton! Just another Koeman! Sit back and counter. Boring football. Nah. #EFC
