Thomas Tuchel insists he “does not feel in danger” of losing his job ahead of Paris Saint-Germain’s Champions League clash with Istanbul Basaksehir on Wednesday.
Tuchel guided PSG to the final of the competition last term but his position was again called into question last week following a 2-1 home defeat to Manchester United at the start of the group stage.
PSG chiefs have reportedly already drawn up a shortlist of options to replace Tuchel, with Massimiliano Allegri and Mauricio Pochettino being considered.
However, the German coach – under contract until the end of the season – is not worried about his future and is hopeful his side will bounce back with victory against the Turkish champions.
“No, I don’t feel in danger before this game. I know how I work. A coach cannot be afraid of the result,” he said at the pre-match news conference.
“We are very demanding of ourselves. I really hope the Manchester United game was the last reminder that you have to give your all, physically and mentally, to win.
“We play the Turkish champions next and, although we are missing players, we have sufficient quality and we are here to show that we absolutely want to win.
