PSG verify decision to sack Thomas Tuchel
Paris St Germain have confirmed they have terminated manager Thomas Tuchel’s contract.
The 47-year-old, who guided the club to two Ligue 1 titles after being designated in July 2018, was reported to have actually been sacked on Christmas Eve.
PSG stated on their official website: “After a thorough analysis of its sporting situation, Paris St Germain chose to terminate Thomas Tuchel’s agreement.”
Previous Borussia Dortmund boss Tuchel assisted PSG to Ligue 1 title success in 2019 and 2020 and won the domestic quadruple in his 2nd season at the club.
PSG presently sit third in the table, one point behind leaders Lyon following recently’s 4-0 home win versus Strasbourg.
The German directed the club to their very first Champions League final in August when they lost 1-0 to Bayern Munich.
PSG chairman and ceo Nasser Al-Khelaifi stated: “I wish to thank Thomas Tuchel and his staff for all they have added to the club.
” Thomas has actually put a great deal of energy and enthusiasm into the task, and we will naturally remember the good moments we shared together. I wish him all the very best for the future.”
Tuchel, who won 95 of his 127 matches in charge of the club, with 20 defeats, assisted them to the knockout stages of this season’s Champions League as Group H winners.
He began his managerial profession at Augsburg in 2007 and spent 5 years in charge of Mainz prior to changing Jurgen Klopp as Dortmund employer in 2015.
Previous Tottenham supervisor and PSG protector Mauricio Pochettino has reportedly been lined up as Tuchel’s successor.
Pochettino was sacked by Spurs in November 2019, five months after their Champions League last defeat to Liverpool.
