PSG announce Thomas Tuchel as manager

Report: Unai Emery now clear favourite to replace Wenger

PARIS (AP) - Paris Saint-Germain hired former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel on Monday, a day after the outgoing Unai Emery was voted coach of the year in the French league.

Emery won a domestic treble with PSG in 2017-18, but came under fire after failing to advance his side past the Champions League last-16 phase.

As for Chelsea, Tuchel's name was also in the running to take over from Antonio Conte at the end of the season.

"Paris Saint-Germain are happy to announce the arrival of Thomas Tuchel as first-team coach", the club revealed in a statement.

It remains to be seen how Tuchel will influence a superstar-filled dressing room and a Europe-hungry club after his volatile nature resulted in his acrimonious exit from Borussia Dortmund, winning just the German Cup in his two years in charge.

"It is with great joy, pride and ambition that I join this great global football club that is Paris St Germain", Tuchel said on the club's website. "Along with my staff, I will do everything I can to help the team push the envelope right up to the highest worldwide level". There is extraordinary potential at PSG and it is the most exciting challenge I've had presented to me. "I am also impatient to get to know Parc des Princes, a famous European stadium and one that boasts an incredible atmosphere".

"Thomas is one of the best and most competitive European coaches to have emerged over the last few seasons", declared PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi. "He has the mix of spectacular and effective principles that have always been the true strength of German football. This style that fans of our Club, of all times, have always looked for and admired".
