French League champions Paris Saint Germain have confirmed that they have parted ways with Thomas Tuchel.
The club expressed their appreciation to the German-born tactician through their president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
Tuchel’s sack came after leading the Parisians to a 4-0 home victory over Strasbourg in their last game of the year.
He was shown the exit doors barely four months after helping them reach their first-ever Champions League final but lost to Bayern Munich by a lone goal. An official with a statement on the club’s website confirms the development:
“I would like to thank Thomas Tuchel and his staff for everything they brought to the club.
“Thomas has put a lot of energy and passion into his work, and of course we will remember the good times we shared together. I wish him the best for his future.”
During his two year reign at the Parc Des Princes, the 47-year-old won two Ligue 1 titles among several other domestic silverware as reported by Goal.
Meanwhile, PSG are currently third on the table – one point behind Lyon and Lille by going into the Christmas break.
