Ligue 1: Thomas Tuchel is the new Paris Saint-Germain manager


French giants Paris Saint-Germain have appointed their new manager: former Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel. The German coach had left his job at Borussia in May 2017 and has been out of work since then, despite having been linked with several managerial vacancies across Europe. The 44-year-old was in charge at Dortmund for two years after having replaced Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp. Former PSG manager Unai Emery led the club to a domestic treble this season, but his two-year contract was not extended.

"It is with great joy, pride and ambition that I join this great world football club that is Paris St-Germain," said Tuchel after signing the contract with PSG. "I look forward to working with all these great players, all of whom are among the best on the planet. With my staff, we will do everything to help the team push their limits to the highest international level. There is extraordinary potential in Paris and this is the most exciting challenge that has come to me. I am also looking forward to discovering Parc des Princes, a legendary European football stadium with a fantastic atmosphere."

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: "Thomas is one of the most competitive European coaches to have emerged at the highest level in recent years. His ambitious personality, his assertive taste for forward-moving play and his strength of character are part of the style we have always heard at Paris St-Germain." It is no secret that the PSG president wants his club to win the Champions League, a target that they have failed to reach in recent seasons despite having spent absurd amounts of money on star players.

    I think PSG looking for a certain style of play (attacking and attractive) and accordingly a manager who'll match their expectations of that, but certainly they want to win things as well and not only in France when it isn't much of challenge for this club and their respective budget.
    To be honest I don't think Tuchel is anywhere near as good as Klopp for example but probably PSG bosses know better than me..at least their fans will hope so.
