Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel offers no guarantees on future

Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel wants his side to win their remaining league games and secure third place.

Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel has said he will be "head coach of Dortmund at Augsburg [their next opponents]," but offered no guarantees over his long-term future.

His comments came after Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said there had been a "disagreement" with Tuchel in the aftermath of the attack on the team bus before a Champions League game last month.

Speaking before the match against Hoffenheim last weekend, Tuchel said the issue was "too big for a matchday," but the 43-year-old later told Fox Sports NL "there is not a fight" between him and Watzke.

He said: "The rumours came up because of an interview Mr Watzke gave on Saturday, an important day.

"It's his right, he's the boss, and we have to deal with it. So rumours are spreading and I am not commenting on it right now."

Tuchel, 43, has a year left on his deal at Dortmund and talks about a new contract had been expected to take place in the summer.

But the coach said only that he wanted to focus on the run-in to the season, with Dortmund fighting for third place and competing in the DFB Pokal final.

"We have big goals to reach," he added and, asked whether he would still be in charge next season, said: "I am the head coach of Dortmund at Augsburg."

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

Earlier this week, Tuchel's adviser Olaf Meinking told Sport1: "The goal is that Thomas stays at BVB and everything calms down."

Meanwhile, French newspaper L'Equipe reported on Wednesday that Nice coach Lucien Favre would be a target for Dortmund if Tuchel left.

It said Favre, set to guide Nice to their best Ligue 1 finish since the mid-1970s, has already been approached by the Bundesliga club.
