PSG president dismisses reports of Tuchel agreement

source : - 15 April 2018

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi dismissed reports the club have already signed Thomas Tuchel as their next coach after a 7-1 win over Monaco secured them the Ligue 1 title.

PSG were in ruthless form on Sunday, as they obliterated the defending champions to regain the title in style.

Unai Emery`s men were 4-1 up by half-time thanks to two goals from Giovani Lo Celso and one apiece from Edinson Cavani and Angel Di Maria.

Things only got worse for Monaco after half-time, as Di Maria got another before Radamel Falcao`s own goal and Julian Draxler`s late strike rounded off an astonishing win.

Although PSG could yet finish the season with a domestic treble, Emery is widely expected to leave the club when his contract ends in June with Tuchel said to have been lined up as a replacement, though Al-Khelaifi claims there is no such agreement.

If we had signed with someone, we would have announced it to you, he told Canal+.

Today we have a coach who was on the pitch. We are very honest; we have a coach today who works with us, with a contract until the end of the season.

Let`s be positive tonight, we`ve done a lot of positive things. We`re champions, it`s a wonderful thing, I thank everyone.

And the season is not over yet, there is the cup to win. The Champions League is our big goal, but it`s not easy. We work hard, but the other clubs do it too. We are very proud today.

Emery himself has been linked with a return to Sevilla should they part ways with Vincenzo Montella.
