Who is Thomas Tuchel?
Thomas Tuchel was born 29 August 1973, and he’s a German professional football coach and former player. He is the head coach of Ligue 1 club Paris Saint-Germain.
Thomas Tuchel Early Life
Tuchel was born in Krumbach. His career as a player came to an end at the age of 25 years due to a chronic knee cartilage injury. In 2000 he began his coaching career and worked for the youth teams of VfB Stuttgart for five years. After a successful one year stay with FC Augsburg II, he was hired by the newly promoted Bundesliga club Mainz 05 in 2009.
Tuchel led Mainz to league stability during his five seasons with the club and received praise for his kind of energetic, attacking football. He also cultivated a strong reputation for focusing on the promotion of youth players. He left Mainz in 2014 due to a financial dispute and was appointed Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund in 2015, where he won the DFB Cup before being dismissed in 2017.
However, he never played for the first team and was dismissed shortly after the age of 19, where he was quickly granted the opportunity to play in the 2nd Bundesliga in 1992 for Stuttgarter Kickers.
He played in only 8 matches in the 1992/93 season with largely unremarkable performances. After an even more disappointing 1993/94 season, he was removed from Kickers’ first team, and quickly transferred to the third team of the Southern Regionalliga, SSV Ulm.
During his 4-year tenure, he became a major pillar of the club and played in 69 games as an impressive centre defender. Nevertheless, he had to end his active career in 1998 at the age of 25 after suffering a chronic knee cartilage injury.
He was subsequently appointed to the French club Paris Saint-Germain in 2018, where he won the league in each of his two seasons, and a four-time domestic title in the second.

Thomas Tuchel Career as a coach
Thomas Tuchel started his coaching career in 2000 as youth team coach at VfB Stuttgart and helped develop future first-team players, namely Mario Gómez and Holger Badstuber. In 2005 he came back to Augsburg, where he was impressed by his ability to coach youth players and was given the role of youth team coordinator. Tuchel held this post for three years and eventually moved to the management team after being offered the position of first-team coach at Augsburg II for the 2007/08 season.
On April 2015, coach Jürgen Klopp announced that he would be leaving Borussia Dortmund after the 2014/15 season. Klopp felt that his position in the club had been compromised and he was looking for a change after a disappointing 7th place in the league.

Dortmund inquired about the availability of various coaches and quickly decided to go with Tuchel. The desire to adopt a similar pressure-based football philosophy made Klopp a trademark, replacing Tuchel for the second time in a row. Soon after, he officially took over the role of the club’s new head coach on 19 April 2015, returning from management after more than a year and signing a three-year contract.
Paris St. Germain
In May 2018, Tuchel signed a 2-year contract with Paris Saint-Germain to replace Unai Emery.
Tuchel’s first entry into the transfer market with a European heavy-weight was the permanent signing of Monaco striker Kylian Mbappé on 1 July for an entry fee of 135 million euros.
To compensate for this significant acquisition and to comply with UEFA Financial Framework and regulations, Tuchel approved the departure of several players, including the perceived first-team player’s Yuri Berchiche and Javier Pastore, as well as the promising youngster Gonçalo Guedes.
Having also made a profit by selling other Bit-Part players, he signed Free Agent goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon on 6 July. A month later, the team signed German defender Thilo Kehrer for 37 million euros.
PSG ended its activities on the summer transfer market with the signing of Spanish left-back Juan Bernat for 5 Million Euros on the due date and united Tuchel with Cameroonian striker Eric Maxim Choupo-Moting. Despite these acquisitions, Tuchel openly lamented the club’s inability to improve adequately in both areas with its full back.
