Tuchel refuses to confirm if he’ll stay at Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel is unwilling to confirm that he will be in charge of the club next season, amid reports of his potential exit.

The 43-year-old has one year left on his current contract at the Bundesliga outfit and was expected to enter talks regarding a new deal at the end of the season.

However, Tuchel has made it clear that he is only focusing on Dortmund's remaining games as they aim for a top-three finish in the Bundesliga and the DFB Pokal trophy. They are set to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the final.

"We have big goals to reach," he told Fox Sports NL.

When asked whether he would be at the helm next season, the Dortmund boss added: "I am the head coach of Dortmund at Augsburg (on Saturday)."

Meanwhile, BVB sporting director Michael Zorc told Bild: "Our focus is on the final two Bundesliga games and the cup final in Berlin."

Tuchel's adviser Olaf Meinking revealed to Sport1 earlier in the week that they are looking to stay on at Dortmund, saying: "The goal is that Thomas stays at BVB and everything calms down."
