Rumour Has It: PSG ready to re-appoint Thomas Tuchel
Thomas Tuchel has been out of a job since being sacked by Chelsea in September but could be on the brink of a return to action.
The German has previously led top European clubs Borussia Dortmund, Paris Saint-Germain and the Blues, whom he took to the 2020-21 Champions League title.
The 49-year-old has been linked with numerous vacant posts in recent months but reportedly turned down two Premier League offers.
TOP STORY – PSG WILLING TO ADMIT TUCHEL ERROR
PSG have grown frustrated with head coach Christophe Galtier and are ready to move to re-appoint Thomas Tuchel, claims the Evening Standard.
The club sacked Tuchel in December 2020 after two and a half years in charge with the best win percentage in Ligue 1 history.
But PSG are reportedly willing to admit their mistake in letting him go as they try to convince Tuchel to return following their recent run of three straight defeats, which was ended by Sunday's 4-3 win over Lille.
The report claims Tuchel would need assurances from the club, but it is the type of role he has been waiting for, joining a top side competing for major trophies.
