Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel has commented on rumors linking his club with the signing of Barcelona star and captain Lionel Messi in the coming period.
Talks about the possibility of joining the Argentine club for the Argentine flared up after Neymar’s statement that he wants Messi to join him again.
BSG coach Thomas Tuchel told a news conference after the Montpellier meeting: “I did not talk to Neymar expressly, I heard about it only five minutes ago.
He continued: “I can not talk about these things because I respect Barcelona and Messi so much.”
He concluded: “I am the coach of Paris Saint-Germain and I can not talk about these things.”
PSG sporting director Leonardo also declined to comment on Messi or comment on the matter on Saturday night.
It is noteworthy that BSS beat Montpellier on Saturday night with a score of three goals against a goal for the local league, and its star, Killian Mbape, scored his 100th goal in the club’s jersey.
