PSG turn to Tuchel to boost European chances

PSG turn to Tuchel to boost European chances

Yet rumours have been rife over the last few months that Neymar wants to leave PSG - who failed miserably in the Champions League, going out 5-2 to Real Madrid on aggregate in the last-16.

The German manager left Dortmund at the end of the 2016/2017 season.

Tuchel said: "It is with great joy, pride and ambition that I join this great world football club that is Paris Saint-Germain". Tuchel, though, has every confidence in his own ability, and called the challenge "by so far the most exciting proposition in football" in PSG's official communiqué.

An ankle injury cut his season short but he managed an impressive 28 goals and 19 appearances in 30 matches in all competitions in his maiden campaign with the Ligue 1 champions. Emery had previously signed a two-year contract in June 2016 but was not given an extension, paving the way for a replacement to come in.

Tuchel has a reputation for being ruthless in his assessment of the players he inherits, which is bad news for a number of PSG stars who have been coasting for a while now.

Whoever is PSG's coach in the future, it will all be about winning the Champions League.

"He is strongly imbued with very strong principles of playing spectacular and clinical football that has always been the foundation of German football, especially on the global scene.

His ambitious personality, his stated predilection for attacking football and his strength of character are all in keeping with the style that we have wanted to instil here at Paris Saint-Germain".

"I would like to thank all of my teammates", Neymar said on beIN Sports television.

Head coach Thomas Tuchel of Dortmund looks on during the DFB Cup final match between Eintracht Frankfurt and Borussia Dortmund at Olympiastadion on May 27, 2017 in Berlin, Germany.

A falling-out with the Dortmund hierarchy cost him as job, and he had been out of work since then. He can coach, but also has good man-management skills, which will be needed with the big names in the PSG squad.
