Kylian Mbappe has written to Thomas Tuchel who was just sacked by the board of Paris Saint Germain for no known reason. In a goodwill message the France international shared to show his respect for the sacked club’s coach, Mbappe wrote that the football manager would never be forgotten.
PSG sacked Thomas Tuchel on Thursday, a night after he led PSG to win Strasbourg 4-0 in a Ligue 1 game. Though PSG struggled a bit in this season’s UEFA Champions League and Ligue 1 campaign, the club’s coach was the least coach that was expected to be sacked this season.
Against all odds this season, Thomas Tuchel was able to lead PSG to qualify for the next round of the UEFA Champions League by topping Group H, ahead of RB Leipzig and Manchester United. This came as a stunner because most pundits were almost about to write off PSG due to the club’s shaky start to the campaign.
As for the league, Tuchel was steadily climbing to the top of the league table after suffering inconsistency at the start of the season. He was sacked when he has successfully pushed the reigning Ligue 1 champions to the 3rd spot on the league table with 35 points in 11 games, a point away from first placed Lyon.
This means that the club still has the potential of winning the league title with Tuchel if he was allowed to continue with the club until the season ends. But the club’s board did not believe so despite taking PSG to the club’s first UEFA Champions League final last season which the club lost to Bayern Munich in August 2020.
With all these achievements at the back of Kylian Mbappe’s mind, the 22-year-old French center-forward hailed the football manager for writing a part of PSG’s history.
“It is sadly the law of football,” Mbappe Wrote to pay tribute to Thomas Tuchel who joined PSG in May 2018. “Nobody will forget your time here. You wrote a wonderful part of the club’s history and I say to you: thank you, coach.”
Since Thomas Tuchel became the football manager of PSG in 2018, Kylian Mbappe has scored 83 goals and provided 44 assists in 98 appearances under the coach.
Under the tutelage of the coach, Mbappe helped PSG to win two successive Ligue 1 titles, one Coupe de France title, a Coupe de la Ligue, a Trophée des Champions, and UEFA Champions League runner up.
