On Tuesday morning, 3rd placed Ligue 1 side PSG announced that they had decided to part ways with German manager Thomas Tuchel, in a piece of news that has been waiting to be confirmed since the 24th December.
The official PSG statement says that the decision was taken “after a deep analysis of the sporting situation.”
Tuchel arrived at PSG in July 2018, and oversaw 127 competitive matches, winning 95 of them, drawing 12 of them and tasting defeat just 20 times. In that period, PSG scored 342 goals, conceding 109.
In just over two seasons, he won Ligue 1 twice, the Coupe de France once, the Coupe de la Ligue once, the Trophée des Champions twice and took Les Parisiens to their first ever Champions’ League final.
PSG President Al Khelaifi had the following to say on the matter:
“I want to thank Thomas Tuchel and his staff for everything that they have brought to the club. Thomas put a lot of energy and passion into his work, and we will certainly remember all the good moments that we shared together. I wish him the best for the future.”
