Paris (AP) – German coach Thomas Tuchel has expressed skepticism about a contract extension with French football champion Paris Saint-Germain.
“If the coach is entering an expiring contract year and there have been no discussions so far after what we have delivered, we can still be open to all possibilities. You don’t have to dream, let’s see,” Tuchel said. pay TV. Sky Channel. The contract of the former Bundesliga coach expires in the summer of 2021.
The sports newspaper “L’Équipe” had recently written that the 47-year-old did not want to renew his contract and wanted to leave the club. The reason is the power struggle with sports director Leonardo. The 51-year-old Brazilian recently responded sharply to Tuchel’s request for reinforcement for the Champions League finalists.
“I once had the naive idea that after four titles and a Champions League final the coach would be out of the firing line for a while. That was five days, we were on vacation. Then the key went on,” said Tuchel. “Then it is so, of course we cannot please everyone. Then we concentrate on continuing to work with the team in such a way that it is possible to be successful. This is achieved through a good relationship with the team and the staff. You have to put on blinders. “
Tuchel has been training the team since July 2018 with Brazilian superstar Neymar and French world champion Kylian Mbappé.
