When Paris Saint-Germain fell 2-1 to RB Leipzig on matchday three of the UEFA Champions League group stage, it was clear that Thomas Tuchel’s managerial seat is scorching.
Capital club sporting director Leonardo didn’t hire Tuchel, so he won’t hesitate to try and fire the German manager to bring in his guy to manage the squad, which he’s starting to do.
According to Paris Fans, Leonardo is putting the wheels in motion to hire former Juventus FC manager Massimiliano Allegri, who he’s had his eyes on for quite some time. However, there are two hurdles that the Brazilian will have to overcome before Allegri becomes the manager of Les Parisiens.
The first hurdle is that Leonardo must get the green light from the Emir of Qatar and owner of PSG, Tamim ben Hamad Al Thani. If Leonardo can get the Emir on board with his decision, he can move on to his last hurdle, meeting Allegri’s demands.
Paris Fans also report that the Italian manager wants to make sure that he will have plenty of time to put his system in place before coming onboard. Allegri wants to make sure that there will be recruitment in January and next summer.
If Leonardo can overcome these hurdles, then Allegri will be managing PSG soon enough.
