It comes just months after he led the club to the final of the prestigious Champions League, but despite that, he was fired by PSG's sporting director Leonardo.

While PSG haven't quite dominated Ligue 1 like in the previous years, Tuchel managed to come out on top in their awkward Champions League group, which contained RB Leipzig and Manchester United.

He guided the side to a 4-0 rout of Racing Strasbourg before he was informed that his services were no longer needed at the club.

Former Tottenham boss, Mauricio Pochettino is currently the favourite to replace Tuchel in the PSG hot seat while Massimiliano Allegri, who has been out of work since leaving Juventus last year, is also one of the frontrunners for the job.
