Thomas Tuchel sacked this Thursday, PSG finds itself without a coach. Not for long obviously …
The beautiful Parisian victory over Strasbourg on Wednesday night (4-0) did nothing. While PSG hardly occupies third place in the elite after 17 days of the championship – only one length, admittedly, from OL and Losc – Thomas Tuchel was notified of his dismissal on the night of Wednesday to Thursday. The ax which the former Dortmund coach had escaped by qualifying his team for the knockout stages of the Champions League still fell!
To take over, there is no shortage of tracks – long standing -. The favorite of the Emir of Qatar is none other than Massimiliano Allegri, who has not officiated since June 2019 and his departure from Juventus. A courted strategist who feels ready to return to business according to his agent Giovanni Branchini. ” He is calm and aware of the general situation, which changes the way clubs operate. Each club must now pay attention to the balance sheet. He wants to come back, he is calm, it will happen when the time comes “, Breathed these days the last appointed to TMW, while an interest of Arsenal for his protégé was mentioned.
Former of the Parisian house, Mauricio Pochettino seems however to hold the rope to succeed Thomas Tuchel. A little more than a year after the end of his collaboration with Tottenham, the Argentine feels ready to take up a new challenge, he who had rejected in particular Monaco and Benfica to devote himself to a larger club. A time considered on the side of Manchester United, even at Barça despite his liabilities ex-player of Espanyol, Pochettino has sufficiently solid shoulders seen from Paris to take up with authority the red and blue torch. Especially since he has never hidden his interest in the club of the capital.
The representatives of the person concerned are already in talks with the Parisian sports director Leonardo. And the outcome of the negotiations would hardly be in doubt if we are to believe some generally well-informed Italian sources.
Mauricio Pochettino [with his lawyers] and PSG board are in contact by 24 hours to reach the agreement.
‘Poch’ is expected to become the new PSG manager on next hours when every detail will be sorted.
Here we go is coming… 🇫🇷🔴🔵 #Pochettino https://t.co/VVEGCphwBB

If these two privileged tracks were to become dead ends, however, the Thiago Motta solution would seem indicated. Now a graduate, and major of his promotion what is more, the transalpine apprentice has already been at the helm of the young shoots of PSG, before a fleeting and mixed experience at the head of Genoa, in Serie A. Recently again, the world champion 2006 did not hide its ambition, in an interview with RMC: “ There are 99% of coaches today who want to coach PSG because they are a big club. It is Tuchel who coaches the club today. From the moment he is no longer there, of course I will be one of the coaches who aspire to coach PSG. I was a player, I know the club, the locker room well. I know the ambitions of the club, externally and internally. It’s something very positive for me and for the club. “
