Thomas Tuchel replaced Unai Emery officially at PSG’s helm

Paris Saint-Germain finally put a stamp on Thomas Tuchel to replace Unai Emery as their head coach. Former Borussia Dortmund coach name was circulating on the papers from quite some time for the PSG managerial job and today Parisian club make it official. Tuchel signed a two-year contract with the Parisian club. The announcement came after PSG celebrated their Ligue 1 trophy after settling with the domestic treble under Unai Emery in his final season at the club.

Thomas Tuchel is a German manager who has started his managerial career at the age of 27. He has earned accolades for himself in his native country after successfully managing VfB Stuttgart youth team to professionally managing Mainz 05.

He got the limelight when he got the Borussia Dortmund’s vacant job after Jurgen Klopp left Dortmund for Liverpool. Tuchel doesn’t have many titles under his belt except last season’s German Cup, but he is the right man to coach PSG.

His offensive style of football will suit PSG, and finally, he’ll be at a club where players won’t be sold without his consent. At Dortmund, he had a strained relationship with club CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke for selling the players without his consent. He didn’t have the liberty to choose his players and we hope at PSG, he’ll be the boss.

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser El-Khelaifi announced Thomas Tuchel arrival on PSG official site. He said, “I am very happy to welcome Thomas Tuchel as the new Paris Saint-Germain coach. Thomas is one of the most competitive European coaches to have emerged at the highest level in recent years. It is strongly imbued with the spectacular and efficient principles that have always nourished the strength of German football, especially on the international scene. His ambitious personality, his assertive taste for forward-moving play and his strength of character are the part of the style we have always endured at Paris Saint-Germain. This style that fans of our club, of all times, have always looked for and admired.”
