PSG have officially parted ways with Thomas Tuchel.
The German boss was on the fringes of an exit which has now been confirmed by the club.
Tuchel joined PSG over two seasons back and had done well to give the team a blueprint of attack.
The French champions have signed a lot of high-profile players over the last few summers, after their cash infusion due to change in ownership.
With so many star players coming in. Tuchel did well to gel them into an unit of sorts. However, the problem of bad mangement from the higher ranks continued as players like Neymar and others were allowed to run through unchecked.
Moreover, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the CEO of PSG has little football knowledge and backs his lack instinct to make purely footballing decisions.
It would seem Tuchel is a victim of that more than anything. However, he did not make it easy for him either after calling out the club chiefs in a scathing attack – which sounded more of a cry of vindication than a fair analysis of the situation.
Here is what the club statement read today –
I would like to thank Thomas Tuchel and his staff for all they have contributed to the club” said Nasser Al-Khelaïfi, Chairman and CEO of Paris Saint-Germain. “Thomas has put a lot of energy and passion into the job, and we will of course remember the good moments we shared together. I wish him all the best for the future.”
