Paris Saint-Germain release statement on Tuchel

Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain have officially confirmed the sacking of Thomas Tuchel.

The French giants decided to part ways with the German coach last week despite helping the team to six titles, but not the most desired prize of the UEFA Champions League.

Additionally, PSG are set to announce former Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochetinno as Tuchel’s successor.

Full club statement:

After an in-depth analysis of his sporting situation, Paris Saint-Germain decided to terminate Thomas Tuchel's contract.

“Arriving on the Paris bench in July 2018, Thomas Tuchel led the capital's team 127 times in all competitions, with a record of 95 wins, 12 draws and 20 losses (342 goals scored, 109 conceded). In addition, he won 2 French Championships (2019, 2020), 1 Coupe de France (2020), 1 Coupe de la Ligue (2020), 2 Champions Trophies (2018, 2019) and led Paris Saint-Germain, last month August, until the first Champions League final in the Club's history.

"I would like to thank Thomas Tuchel and his coaching staff for all they have brought to the Club," said Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, president of Paris Saint-Germain. "Thomas has put a lot of energy and passion into his work and of course we will remember the good times we shared. I wish him the best for his future."

Meanwhile, PSG’s next game will be a Ligue 1 trip to St Etienne in the new year.
