“It is with great joy, pride and ambition that I join this great global football club that is Paris Saint-Germain,” said Tuchel in a statement released on Monday by PSG.
“I look forward to working with all these great players, all of whom are among the best on the planet. With my staff, we will do everything to help the team push their limits to the highest international level. There is tremendous potential in Paris and this is the most exciting challenge that has come to me.”
“I am also impatient to get to know Parc des Princes, a famous European stadium and one that boasts an incredible atmosphere.”
The German boss took over from Jurgen Klopp at Signal Iduna Park in 2015 but was dismissed in 2017 after winning the DFB-Pokal.
