PSG: Thomas Tuchel Replaces Unai Emery As Manager

German coach Thomas Tuchel has signed a contract to lead Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain for the next two seasons, the French club confirmed on Monday.

Since leaving Dortmund last summer, Thomas Tuchel has been linked with a number of vacant positions.

Tuchel's last appointment came at Borussia Dortmund, replacing Jürgen Klopp, where he won the German Cup in 2017.

The 44-year-old has been without a job since he was sacked as Dortmund coach following his strained relationship with the club's hierarchy. The Ligue 1 title they secured with a 7-1 thrashing of their closest rival, Monaco, back in April was their fifth in seven seasons since the club was bought by Oryx Qatar Sports Investments.

However, his injury appeared to cost Unai Emery's team dear in their Champions League last-16 tie against Real Madrid - he was unable to play in the second leg, and PSG lost 5-2 on aggregate.

At his maiden interview, Tuchel, the former Mainz FC trainer, declared his "pride" in joining the "great world football club that is Paris St-Germain". "I can't wait to start working with all these great players who are all among the best in the world". With my coaching staff, we will do everything we can to help the team reach success, including on the worldwide scene. There is extraordinary potential at PSG and it is the most exciting challenge I've had presented to me.

He will be tasked with turning big-spending PSG into a side capable of winning the Champions League. "He has the mix of spectacular and effective principles that have always been the true strength of German football".

He has taken a picture with the new shirt, saying he's looking forward to wearing the shirt with PSG.

Neymar, the Brazilian attacking star on whose shoulders his nation's hopes for tournament success always rest, has been linked with a move away from the French capital where he is now plying his trade with Paris Saint-Germain.
