PSG coach, Thomas Tuchel future at Paris St-Germain is reportedly in serious doubt after the French club lost the Champions League final to Bayern Munich in Lisbon.
Tuchel masterminded PSG’s route to the final that included victories over Borussia Dortmund and Atalanta in the first two knockout rounds and a semi-final triumph over Leipzig.
However, Bayern Munich brought to an end PSG’s journey to lift the European title. Kingsley Coman’s second-half header drew the line between the two sides to seal a historic treble for the German club and clinch their sixth European title.
Allegedly, journalist Gianluca Di Marzio informed Sky Sports Italia that PSG chiefs are in discussions on the possibility to end their association with Tuchel following the loss. Massimiliano Allegri might be hired as the German coach replacement.
Tuchel has been in charge of the Ligue 1 title winners since 2018. He has won the back-to-back league title as well as this year’s French Cup and League Cup.
The 46-year-old coach, who was at Borussia Dortmund before moving to Paris has won 80 out of his 104 matches in charge of PSG. His win percentage goes up to 76%.
The French Club is also losing captain Thiago Silva this summer. The Brazilian defender set to sign a two-year deal at Chelsea.
Tuchel’s potential replacement, Allegri has been out of a job since leaving Juventus last summer. It is claimed he has been strongly linked with a return to management this year.
The Italian coach has as well been named as a potential manager at Inter Milan should the club relieve Antonio Conte of his duties.
At Juventus, Allegri won five consecutive Serie A titles with four league and cup doubles in a row while he reached two Champions League finals with the Turin club.
The 53-year-old has also coached several other teams in Italy including AC Milan.
