Borussia Dortmund part company with manager Thomas Tuchel

Borussia Dortmund part company with manager Thomas Tuchel

Thomas Tuchel has left Borussia Dortmund in a surprise move just three days after they won the DFB Pokal cup final.
The 43-year-old has been linked with Arsenal in recent months amid doubts over Arsene Wenger’s future, having long impressed as one of the most promising up-and-coming coaches in Europe.

However, Bild claim Dortmund made the decision to sack the German tactician just after the end of a season that saw him guide the club to silverware and third place in the league.

The club have now confirmed the news of Tuchel’s departure, following an initial personal statement from him on social media earlier on.

Tuchel himself confirmed the news via his Twitter account, saying: ‘I am grateful for two beautiful, eventful and exciting years. Too bad that it does not go (on).
Thanks to the fans, to the team, to the staff and to all who supported us. Wishes the @BVB all the best. TT.’

Tuchel had a year to run on his Dortmund contract, but in-fighting with senior figures behind the scenes at the club is thought to have been behind this surprise early exit.
His final game in charge of Dortmund was their 2-1 cup final win over Eintracht Frankfurt, giving the club their first trophy since 2012.
Despite previous links with Arsenal, various reports suggest a move to Bayer Leverkusen could be on the cards for the former Mainz boss next.
