Paris Saint-Germain have ruthlessly sacked Thomas Tuchel on Christmas Eve, according to reports, with Mauricio Pochettino expected to replace him in the French capital.
Sport Bild and L’Equipe are among those to report the German’s departure, while RMC and Telefoot claim former Tottenham boss Pochettino will soon be announced as the new manager.
The bombshell news comes just hours after PSG thrashed Strasbourg 4-0 to climb within a point of the Ligue 1 summit.
Tuchel, who arrived at the Parc des Princes in 2018, guided the club to the Champions League final in Lisbon last season, where they fell to a narrow 1-0 loss against Bayern Munich.
It will be Pochettino’s first job since he was sacked by Tottenham in November last year.
The Argentine will be tasked with delivering that elusive European crown to PSG, something he almost achieved with Spurs when they dramatically reached the 2019 final in Madrid before succumbing to Liverpool.
