Thomas Tuchel has been sacked from his post as manager by Borussia Dortmund, just days after winning the DFB-Pokal final against Eintracht Frankfurt.

The 43-year-old had been at the helm of the Bundesliga club since succeeding Jurgen Klopp in 2015, but the club have now relieved him of his duties.

Only last week, Tuchel claimed that he wanted to remain at the club, but according to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, his relationship with chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke has deteriorated, which is the only thing at the present moment to read into.

The German himself tweeted in the early hours of Tuesday morning alluding to the impending news, stating that it was a 'pity to not go on', which would suggest that there was indeed some kind of falling out.

The surprising news will surely now fuel all sorts of rumours about his next job as a manager - Twitter has already been awash with Arsenal fans hopeful he will replace Arsene Wenger as manager at the Emirates, after the Frenchman claimed a seventh FA Cup on Saturday.

Official confirmation was delivered by Dortmund after BILD newspaper broke the story after receiving word from their sources.

Tuchel led Dortmund to their first piece of major silverware since 2012 with their victory over Eintracht on Saturday, and also leaves the club having never been on the losing side at home in the Bundesliga.
