THOMAS TUCHEL is edging closer to his next job after leaving the UK and taking Spanish lessons, according to reports.
The former Chelsea boss was forced to leave the UK after his visa expired following his sacking at Stamford Bridge.

According to journalist Christian Falk, Tuchel has “intensified his Spanish” after leaving the UK.
Instead the Blaugrana have dropped into the Europa League playoffs, and will face a titanic clash with Manchester United in February.
With both outfits struggling to overcome their Champions League demons, Tuchel could be brought in to remedy the situation.
The 49-year-old masterminded an improbable Champions League victory with Chelsea months after being appointed.
Chelsea were knocked out of the Carabao Cup in the third round by Manchester City, meaning their next game is not until December 27 when they face Bournemouth.
