PSG players have no regrets losing Tuchel to Chelsea

Paris Saint Germain players have no regrets losing Thomas Tuchel last season.

The Chelsea manager was infamously sacked on Christmas Eve by Paris Saint Germain before leading the Blues to the Champions League title last season.

However, Le Parisien via Le 10 Sport says Paris Saint Germain's players are happier under current coach Mauricio Pochettino

It's suggested the squad were tired of Tuchel's message and felt he had also lost interest in the job.

It's claimed the players found Tuchel was allowing them to cut corners and avoid accountability - which is in contrast to Pochettino's methods.

The Argentine is intense in his approach, but also flexible where needed.

After leading the club to a first ever Champions League final last year, Tuchel was sacked by Paris Saint Germain on Christmas Eve. He had also led Paris Saint Germain to a second consecutive Ligue Une title last season, adding to the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue triumphs to mark a famous Treble for the Parisians.
