With the Frenchman now leaving and Tuchel snapped up, Arsenal is still in the market for a manager to take the reins.

As of just a few minutes ago, Thomas Tuchel is officially the new manager/head coach of Paris Saint-Germain.

Unai Emery had been told his contract will not be renewed and yesterday it had been confirmed that German manager Tuchel will take over.

Former Brazil striker Ronaldo does not know if Neymar is happy at Paris Saint-Germain but believes he has brought a great deal to both the club and the league since his arrival.

'I look forward to working with all these great players, who are among the best on the planet. PSG has enormous potential and it is by so far the most exciting proposition in football.

According to French sports daily L'Equipe, Tuchel was recommended directly to Qatar's Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani by the Qatari consul in Germany. The club from the French capital is not a member of that exclusive elite club of European clubs.

Cozart had a pair of singles before stepping to the dish with a runner on second and one out in the bottom of the ninth inning. Cozart went to third on a wild pitch, and after a walk to Mike Trout , scored when Justin Upton grounded into a force play.

They had been on the look-out for a replacement for Emery since being beaten 5-2 on aggregate by Real Madrid in the last 16 of the Champions League in March.

He has been out of a job since Dortmund fired him at the end of last season, days after winning the German Cup.

Tuchel, 44, will be looking to continue winning trophies with PSG, particularly the next edition of the Champions League, after the French side was eliminated from the current edition by Real Madrid.

He added: "He is strongly imbued with the principles of spectacular and clinical football that have always been at the heart of German football, especially on the worldwide scene".

"His ambitious personality, his assertive taste for forward-moving play and his strength of character are part of the style we have always heard at Paris St-Germain".

Tuchel has a reputation for being ruthless in his assessment of the players he inherits, which is bad news for a number of PSG stars who have been coasting for a while now.
