Borussia Dortmund have sacked their cup-winning coach Thomas Tuchel.
The 43-year-old, who succeeded Jurgen Klopp at Signal Iduna Park, only led his team to German Cup glory last weekend.
But his tenure has been cut abruptly short after reports of a strained relationship with the club’s board.
Tuchel confirmed the news via a newly-created Twitter account on Tuesday.
He wrote: ‘I am grateful for two beautiful, eventful and exciting years. Too bad that it does not go on.
‘Thanks to the fans, to the team, to the staff and to all who supported us. All the best wishes @BVB. TT’.
Bild claim Tuchel’s compensation package could cost Dortmund around £2.5million.
