“It is always the same, it bores me also a little bit. I don”t understand why it”s such a big deal in france,” the 46-year-old told streaming service DAZN about PSG”s title aspirations. Other teams have also failed in their attempt because “the opponents are so strong. That’s why it’s not worth reacting to it, letting it unsettle and annoy you.”
Tuchel has great respect for his opponents atalanta because of their unusual style of play. "All the defensive principles that we believe in for decades, that you stay in your lane, do not cross, occupy space and move independently of the way of the opponent, all do not apply to atalanta," said the former BVB coach. German bergamo pro robin gosens doesn’t think his team is without a chance: "they have a lot of great players, but the four-month break puts them at a big disadvantage. We are fully in rhythm and that is crucial for a team," gosens told dazn. The team spirit also speaks for the serie A club.
Tuchel will be on the sidelines in today’s game despite the fub injury he recently suffered in training. "It’s a bit painful, but in the meantime it’s okay," said the former bundesliga coach. "I got used to it, even though it’s hard. Everything is of course super exhausting, every little way." The coach had to be on the 6. August sprained his left bone and fractured a middle bone.
