Thomas Tuchel has been sacked by Paris St-Germain just a few months before the end of his contract with the French side.
The 47-year-old joined PSG at the beginning of the 2018-19 season and led the club to two Ligue 1 titles. The German tactician also won the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue in 2020.
Sky Germany reported that he was sacked after PSG defeated Strasbourg 4-0 at home in a Ligue 1 encounter on Wednesday.Before the game, Tuchel cleared the air on an interview in which he said he often felt more like “a sports politician or sports minister than a coach.”
He told Canal+: “I didn’t say it’s more about politics than sport, nor that I lost the fun of training. This is not true… It is possible they translated incorrectly.
“Watch the video interview. I just said that PSG are unique and that it’s a big challenge for me. It’s always been like that.
“I like this challenge and nothing has changed.”
Former Tottenham Hotspurs manager, Mauricio Pochettino, is expected to replace the German at PSG.
