Thunderclap at PSG! the leaders of the club of the capital have indeed decided to separate from Thomas Tuchel, who pays the inconstant results of the Parisians since the start of the season.
The situation is obviously not unlike that of Antoine Koumbouré, thanked in the winter of 2011 when the capital club was leading the Ligue 1 at the truce. Nine years later, it is, according to The team, Thomas Tuchel’s turn to be sacked from his post as PSG coach. The German technician would have been informed by Leonardo during the night, after a last victory against Strasbourg.
The Rouge et Bleu are certainly only in third place in the championship, but are only a step behind Olympique Lyonnais and Lille and the German coach seemed to have done what was necessary to make it through the winter by allowing the Red and Blue to win their ticket for the knockout stages of the Champions League, first place in the group at stake.
But the Parisian leaders decided otherwise. Because the sluggish results of the last finalists of the Champions League are not the only grievance against the former coach of Dortmund. The latter also pays for an unambitious game project and faulty communication. Evidenced by his controversial interview broadcast by Sport1 on Tuesday and which the person concerned was also struggling to answer at the end of the match against Strasbourg.
But the decision to part ways with the German coach had already been taken for several days. Moreover, according to RMC Sport, the name of Thomas Tuchel’s successor is already known. As mentioned for several weeks, it is indeed Mauricio Pochettino who should replace him at the head of the club of the capital. Former PSG player, the Argentinian technician has been without a club since the end of his adventure at Tottenham in the fall of 2019.
