Former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel was surprisingly dismissed by the French giants PSG shortly before Christmas.

Tuchel had won the league with PSG and reached the Champions League final, only to lose narrowly to Bayern Munich.

Tuchel is now being linked with Chelsea, if Frank Lampard gets sacked, and his assistant at PSG Zsolt Low had admitted that they even overachieved for PSG.

“We were surprised because on the December 23, after winning a match 4-0 against Strasbourg, Leonardo brought us together to say that the club was no longer counting on Thomas for the future,” Low told Nemzeti Sport earlier in January.

“After having to face considerable difficulties in 2020, after achieving historic success with PSG, after going through the group stage of the Champions’ League in autumn, and we were in full swing in the league, it made the decision very difficult to understand.

“The fact that we were impacted by numerous injuries throughout the season, and had to come up against Covid-19, I think that it was a great professional success to finish the year the way we did. We overperformed, that is the truth.”
