A few months ago, former Paris Saint-Germain midfielder and Under-19 manager Thiago Motta left the coaching ranks of the club for the managerial position at Genoa CFC and now, it appears as though there’s another coach that could depart PSG for a higher role, and that’s assistant Zsolt Löw.
Löw has been with PSG since 2018 but his days with the club could come to an end as German club VfB Stuttgart is showing interest, according to Bild (via CulturePSG). Currently, in Bundesliga 2, Stuttgart is in third place even after firing their coach Tim Walter. With a coaching vacancy, the club is zeroing in on Löw.
However, don’t expect PSG manager Thomas Tuchel to let go of his assistant so easily, especially this deep into the season. When approached by Bild, the Hungarian tactician remained focused on the job at hand at PSG.
“So far, no one from VfB has contacted me,” Löw said. “What I can say is that I feel very comfortable in Paris, I’m still under contract for a year and a half and we still have big goals. I am currently concentrating on this.”
After being relegated to the second division of German football last season, Stuttgart is doing everything possible to get back to the Bundesliga. Nonetheless, it looks as though they’ll have to look elsewhere in their coaching search at least for now.
