The Parc des Princes behind closed doors has an advantage for Thomas Tuchel: he will not have to listen to the protests, more and more audible, against him. In the same way that a final break took place this summer with Leonardo, the opinion that the supporters of the German coach have is crumbling over the weeks. The continental defeats against Manchester United (2-1) and, Wednesday night, at RB Leipzig (2-1) do nothing to improve the popularity of the slender technician. The Champions League final in August seems a long way off …
Among the complaints, Tuchel’s choices, on team compositions or on replacements during the match, come first. “Against Leipzig, his only idea is to bring in Kehrer instead of Sarabia to try to pull off a draw, exclaims Denis, in his forties. Even ten to eleven, I expected something else. His choices during a match never make the difference. “
Hakim, subscriber to the Parc des Princes, shifts: “He tells us about the Champions League final but who did we beat? Atalanta and Leipzig. They are not European leaders. His record against the greats is a shameful elimination against Manchester United and a logical defeat against Bayern Munich. “
“It brings no added value and makes no difference”
Alexis, he says he never believed in Thomas Tuchel. It was doomed to failure, thinks this fan of the first hour. The QSI version of the PSG project, as we have understood, is based on the players who are the real bosses of the club. So the coach has to be as powerful as them. This cannot be the case with a coach who has won only one German Cup. “For Alexis, the main flaw of the former Borussia Dortmund coach lies in his way of” scuttling his team. “
“It does not add value and makes no difference,” he continues. I hear it’s easier to criticize from the couch but when you have players like Marquinhos and Danilo and you change positions, you can’t be surprised afterwards. These are absurd choices. The strength of a coach is not to make something simple into complicated. Tuchel does the opposite. “Like the communication war with Leonardo, publicly displayed by the Parisian coach in September. With the fans, the battle seems to have been won by the sports director.
“He whines all the time”
“Tuchel wanted players? He had them, recalls Hakim, citing the good arrivals of Moise Kean or Rafinha. I mainly blame him for his constant complaints. He sits on one of the most coveted sidelines in the world and he whines all the time. I hope Leonardo will stay ten years and that he will leave as soon as possible. “Yes, he has the right not to get along with Leonardo, says Alexis. But in Mainz, in Dortmund, with Antero Henrique, nothing was working either. If he wants to be general manager, let him find another club. What’s going on with Danilo and Marquinhos is a completely stupid ego war. “
As for injuries, suspended, the health crisis … these fans do not want to hear about it. “This is the case for all clubs in Europe,” sweeps Alexis, according to whom the turning point of the Tuchel period dates back to the return leg of the round of 16 of C1 against Manchester United in March 2019. “There is no more. that Neymar, who is at war with Leonardo, to support him, ”says Denis, who would like to see Mauricio Pochettino, former coach of Tottenham and former PSG player, land in Paris. “This is his house and we are waiting for it,” he concludes.
