PSG chief Leonardo (again) defends sacking Chelsea boss Tuchel

PSG sporting director Leonardo has again defended his sacking of Thomas Tuchel.

Tuchel was dismissed by Leonardo on Christmas Eve, 2020, before taking charge of Chelsea and leading them to the Champions League title last season.

Leonardo told L'Equipe: "We cannot say that if he had stayed he would have won the C1 here.

"It's a question of context, of interweaving a lot of elements. It was a time (Christmas 2020) where we may not see a future with him.

"The question was to know if we were going to the end of the contract without certainty or if we stopped before. This is the choice we made."
