As on every day before a match, Thomas Tuchel showed up for a press point this Saturday. However, it was only very briefly question of the meeting against Reims which is looming for PSG (Sunday, at 9 p.m.). The journalists especially wanted to know more about what Ile-de-France residents are preparing for the last ten days of the transfer window. The German technician did not reveal everything about it, but he assured that his club will be active.
“The club knows my opinion”
So far, and if we except the cases of Sergio Rico and Mauro Icardi (transferred permanently), Paris has only signed the Italian Alessandro Florenzi. Tuchel admitted that there is a need for more reinforcements, as he has never ceased to proclaim since the start of the season. “I can only say that the club knows my opinion, my analysis and that of my staff on last season. Now I am waiting, the transfer window is not over. The situation is not easy with the coronavirus. We are still has time. “

Tuchel advocates discretion on the transfer window
The names of Tiémoué Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger are currently circulating in the press. The Parisian coach was careful not to confirm or deny these tracks, specifying that he “has never given names” and that it is imperative to “respect all clubs”. Regarding the requests he sent to his management, his response was: “The key to (good) internal communication is that it stays that way. These are not big things but it must stay between us. I proceed in this way, it is the responsibility of a coach to give his opinion on the current situation and that of last season. I did that, now we’re waiting. “
“14 suspensions against 4 for OM, I cannot accept it”
Today, PSG has gaps in many sectors, and it is all the more apparent with the many suspensions or injuries that the champions of France have recorded recently. On this subject, and reacting to the four firm matches inflicted on Angel Di Maria, Tuchel expressed his dissatisfaction : “I can understand the decision. He had a reaction that we can’t like, that’s clear. I must note that we have suspensions for 14 games for our team, and 4 in total for OM. I can’t accept it even though I have to. But I dont understand. All the guys showed a bad reaction, I don’t like it but it was a reaction, and not us alone. With 14 on one side and 4 on the other, we have the impression that we are solely responsible for this situation. It’s a bad feeling ”.
