Paris Saint-Germain have made the decision to head coach Thomas Tuchel, German news outlet Bild have revealed.

Tuchel has been dismissed from his role at the Parc des Princes just four months after leading the French side to the Champions League Final, where they lost to Bayern Munich.

The 47-year-old, who departs the French giants after two-and-a-half years in charge gave an interview back in Germany to SPORT1 (as translated by the Daily Mail) in which he was quoted as saying he had, at times, felt more like “a sports politician or sports minister than a coach” during his time at the club.

After the win over Strasbourg, he had attempted to clarify those comments to Canal+ (Daily Star) but has now fallen on the axe.

Tuchel’s departure has led to reports suggesting that Mauricio Pochettino is expected to take over the managerial hot seat at his former club.

The Argentine has been out of work since being dismissed as Tottenham Hotspur manager in November 2019.

RMC Sport chief football editor Mohamed Bouhafsi has taken to Twitter to reveal that Pochettino is set to head to the French capital.
