Two reasons why PSG sacked Thomas Tuchel on Christmas Eve

ligaliveatevening24december2″]According to news coming out of British media , the Paris Saint-Germain manager was sacked hours his side cruised to a 4-0 victory over Strasbourg.

Paris Saint-Germain have sacked Thomas Tuchel only four months after he led the Ligue 1 outfit to their first Champions League final in August.

ESPN claims that two factors proved to be the undoing of Tuchel at the club he guided to successive Ligue 1 tables, French Cup and French League Cup in his two seasons in Paris. The first has to do with the club's ‘lack of playing style' under the German manager.

Les Parisiens didn't start the ongoing season well and currently find themselves at 3 rd place going into the winter break, with a point separating them from leaders Lyon and 2 nd placed Lille, both of whom are level on points but separated by goal difference .

Yet another reason PSG have shown Tuchel the door was his unsavory relationship with sporting director Leonardo, whom the former Borussia Dortmund manager met in the past few days, with club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi also in the attendance.

Reports claim that while PSG players expected their managers to get the sack, they hadn't grown weary of his methods. The 47-year-old was a well-liked figure around the dressing room despite having heated moments with Kylian Mbappe on the pitch last season.

His departure from the scene is expected to be followed by the arrival of former Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino, with BBC reporting that the Argentine manager is favorite to be named as the next PSG boss in the coming days.
