Appointed in 2018 and under contract until 2021, Thomas Tuchel will be sacked from his position as coach of Paris Saint-Germain according to various sources. Looking back on his two and a half years at the head of the Rouge et Bleu.
1 – The Bavarian coach will forever remain as the first who brought PSG to the Champions League final. It was last August, in Lisbon, after an elimination in the eighth in 2019. Luis Fernandez and his players stopped in the semi-finals in 1995, and it was the best course for the club in the capital so far. Carlo Ancelotti (2013) and Laurent Blanc (2014, 2015, 2016) indeed broke their teeth at the quarterfinal stage, while Unai Emery did not pass the eighth (2017, 2018).

It is as much as Unai Emery (1 L1, 2 CdF, 1 CdL, 2 TdC), but less than Laurent Blanc, the record holder with his eleven trophies on the Parisian bench (3 L1, 3 CdF, 3 CdL, 3 TdC ).
75.5 – Tuchel has the second best matches played / matches won ratio in Paris Saint-Germain history with 75.5% wins, just behind Unai Emery (76) and ahead of Laurent Blanc (72).
96 – PSG have won 96 matches in all competitions with Tuchel (11 draws, 20 defeats), the latter rising to the podium in the history of the club behind Luis Fernandez (125 wins) and Laurent Blanc (126).
127 – With 127 matches on the bench, the Bavarian technician comes in seventh position in the history of the Parisian club, far behind the record holder Luis Fernandez (244, 1994-96 and December 2000-June 2003).
