Thomas Tuchel has been sacked by Paris Saint-Germain, according to Fabrizio Romano and BILD. His departure comes after a topsy-turvy first half of the season by the French giants, during which he had constant tussles with the sporting director at PSG, Leonardo Araújo.

Results Not Matching Decision
The French Champions thrashed RC Strasbourg 4-0 on Wednesday night, which turned out to be Tuchel’s last match in charge. PSG have not had everything going their way this season. In fact, they lost the opening two fixtures of the season. However, they managed to progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League and also closed the gap at the top of Ligue 1 to just one point.
The decision to sack Tuchel just before Christmas appears to be quite harsh and perhaps his difference in opinion with Leonardo has finally caught up. Tuchel reached the final of the Champions League only four months ago and is definitely was one of the most successful managers at PSG.
