Today, Thursday, a German press report confirmed the dismissal of Thomas Tuchel, Paris Saint-Germain’s coach.
According to the German newspaper “Bild,” the Paris Saint-Germain administration made an official decision to dismiss Tuchel after defeating Strasbourg by 4-0.
After the Strasbourg match, Rachel’s comments, in which he attacked the Paris Saint-Germain administration, may have had a role in his dismissal.
Tuchel said on the “Sport 1” channel: “We lost the final match of the Champions League against Bayern Munich, and we did not feel that we convinced people or there was an appreciation for our work, which sometimes gives me sadness and bitterness.”
He added: “Expectations in Paris are very high, whether inside or outside the club, here we lack recognition of any victory we achieve in the league, like Bayern Munich, for example, is said to have Neymar, Mbappe and De Maria, so beating Bordeaux is not an achievement.”
On his future and negotiations to renew his contract, Tuchel continued: “Frankly, I asked myself in the first six months of this season, am I still a coach, a political position, or a minister of sports? Where is my role as a coach in this club?”
For its part, the British newspaper “Daily Mail” reported that the Argentine coach, Mauricio Pochettino, former Tottenham coach, is the closest to succeeding Tuchel in coaching Paris Saint-Germain.
The name Pochettino has been associated with coaching Saint-Germain on more than one occasion, especially since the differences between Tuchel and the Brazilian Leonardo, the sporting director of the French capital club, appeared long ago.
