The struggles of Paris Saint-Germain manager Thomas Tuchel in Ligue 1 have caused many to call for his firing, especially with managers such as Mauricio Pochettino and Massimiliano Allegri unemployed.
By now, many already know that the German tactician’s contract expires at the end of the season. Nonetheless, it feels as though Tuchel won’t make it to June with the squad continuing to struggle.
If Les Parisiens decided that Tuchel cannot continue the rest of the 2020-21 campaign as the manager, it would cost them a fair amount to make him go away. According to L’Equipe (via Canal Supporters), it would cost PSG between €5-million and €7-million because both parties didn’t agree to a dismissal.
With the coronavirus pandemic affecting the financial aspects of clubs worldwide, forking over that kind of money when Tuchel’s contract expires in a few months will cause them to pause and think if it’s worth it.
Tuchel’s next few months in Paris will likely be his last. For his next job, he could be eyeing a managerial position with Manchester United as both the Mirror reported mutual interest.
