Max Allegri Lined Up As Thomas Tuchel Successor After Champions League Final Defeat

Thomas Tuchel could be sacked after Paris Saint-Germain Champions League final defeat with Max Allegri targeted, according to reports.

PSG's star-studded names including Neymar and Kylian Mbappe failed to deliver in Lisbon leaving club chiefs debating the future of Tuchel.

According to Gianluca di Marzio, he told Sky “employees close to PSG” believe showdown talks are set to commence with Tuchel's adventure coming to an end.

He adds if that is the case, former Juventus manager Allegri is prepared to fill his boots in a bid to reach the pinnacle.

PSG owner, Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, has pumped billions into the club in an attempt to win their first ever Champions League.

They've had four managers in the last nine seasons each one failing in their task to bring home football's biggest prize.

Tuchel was appointed in 2018 and delivered two league titles and one domestic cup.

But the French giants were humiliated in the Champions League Round of 16 last year after blowing a 2-0 aggregate lead to Manchester United before last night's heartbreak.

Allegri has been without work since leaving Juventus in 2019 after delivering their fifth straight Scudetto.
