AFP1 Thomas Tuchel has signed a new two-year contract at PSG
The French youngster, 20, blamed Tuchel for falling short in his quest – after he was "rested" on numerous occasions throughout the season.
Despite that – and being dumped out of the Champions League in harrowing manner at the hands of Manchester United – PSG are convinced the ex-Borussia Dortmund boss is the man for the job.
On his new contract, Tuchel revealed: "I am very happy and proud of my extension and my commitment to Paris Saint-Germain.
"Thank you to the president and the whole club for the confidence they show me and my staff.
"This only reinforces my goal of bringing this team to the top of its ambitions thanks to everyone's work.
"I am also very touched by the support marks of the fans. I am convinced that the best is coming for our club."
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi added: "The entire Paris Saint-Germain family is delighted today to see Thomas Tuchel extend his contract.
"For a year now, Thomas has been bringing fantastic energy every day, not only to players, but to the entire club.
"Our supporters immediately adopted this coach who is always very anxious to share his analysis and emotions.
"Thomas is a huge fan of football, a coach and at the same time very demanding and listens to others.
"Thomas has an expertise of the game as well as very great talents as a manager and we are delighted."
Tuchel led PSG to their second Ligue 1 crown in a row – and sixth in seven years – in the 2018-19 season.

Jose Mourinho – out of work since being sacked by United in December – had been linked with the top job at PSG had Tuchel left.
The Special One had been tipped to take over at Real Madrid before Zinedine Zidane reclaimed his old role.
The former Chelsea chief then turned his attention to the Paris giants, with Tuchel's future in doubt.
But those dreams have now been put to bed, with Tuchel staying at the Parc des Princes until at least June 2021.
