Christian Pulisic’s Borussia Dortmund appear to be in for quite the offseason. After finishing third in the Bundesliga and winning the German Cup, Thomas Tuchel announced on Twitter on Tuesday that he’s out as manager of the club.
Tuchel and the higher ups at Dortmund have apparently had a falling out, leading to them cutting ties with the manager.
This news comes on the heels of reports emerging that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang told BVB that he wants to leave this summer. And also news that Marco Reus will miss a significant amount of time with a partially torn ACL.
With the success and potential of Ousmane Dembele, you can be sure that massive bids will be on the way for him as well.
This all adds up for a very interesting and important offseason for Dortmund. They must now find a manager to replace Tuchel, who has been great for Pulisic’s development. He’s managed the teenager’s minutes and exposure very well. Now Pulisic must win over a new manager and hope to remain influential in Dortmund’s plans.
If you’re one of the many Americans invested in Dortmund because of Pulisic, buckle up. It’s going to be a wild summer.
