Thiago Motta favourite for PSG job?

A former Serie A coach is the favourite to replace Thomas Tuchel at PSG, claim RMC Sport, but it’s Thiago Motta rather than Max Allegri.

Tuchel took his team to the Champions League Final in August, but they have stuttered so far this season and the tactician openly clashed with director Leonardo over transfer strategy.

It’s rumoured an exit could well be imminent and until now, former Juventus boss Allegri had been considered the most likely alternative, with Mauricio Pochettino also of interest.

The 28-year-old joined Vicenza on a permanent move from Inter in the summer and admits he is happy to have put an end to a series of endless loan spells.

“I spent too much time at Inter, going out on loan all the time didn’t help me,” Longo told Tuttosport.

“I always have the same passion, the same desire. I never give up and you’ll see it here at Vicenza.”
