Paris Saint-Germain hired former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, a day after the outgoing Unai Emery was voted coach of the year in the French league.

Tuchel signed a two-year contract with the French champion, starting in July. Financial terms were not disclosed.

“It is with much joy, pride and ambition that I am joining this big club,” Tuchel said. “I can’t wait to start working with all these great players who are all among the best in the world.”

A strong disciplinarian, he could end up being an excellent choice for PSG, a club where star players have often enjoyed too many privileges in the past.

Praised for his attractive style of attacking play and fine tactics, Tuchel was without a club since he was sacked by Borussia at the end of the 2016-17 season. The 44-year-old Tuchel led Dortmund to the German Cup title in 2017 before getting fired three days later after falling out with club officials over the course of an inconsistent season.
