Thomas Tuchel has been sacked by Paris Saint-Germain just hours after their comprehensive win over Strasbourg.
The 47-year-old’s reign is over, with the French champions taking the decision to make a change in the dugout.
Tuchel has now paid the price for his team’s inconsistency, with sporting director Leonardo and club president Nasser Al Khelaifi informing the German of his dismissal on Wednesday night.
Paris won the Ligue 1, Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue last season.
Tuchel was forced to defend himself during which he was quoted as saying he felt “more like a sports politician or sports minister than a coach” in his first season in France.
“I didn’t say it’s more about politics than sport, nor that I lost the fun of training. This is not true,” he told Canal Plus. “It is possible they translated incorrectly.
PSG will now look to appoint a new head coach before their next fixture against Saint-Etienne at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard on January 6.
PSG still have multiple trophies to play for, with a huge round-of-16 tie against Barcelona in February.
