New PSG coach Tuchel: Wenger long been my idol, but...

New PSG coach Thomas Tuchel has admitted his admiration for Arsene Wenger.

However, the German insists he's not spoken with the former Arsenal manager about joining him in Paris.

Tuchel said at his presentation yesterday: "But Arsene Wenger is not at PSG, right? I must admit that he is one of the greatest managers in the world and has long been one of my idols.

"I was a player in the 3rd Division and I perceived that there was something different in his coaching style and his team's style. There was so much joy on the ground.

"He's had a great career. I know what you want to hear from me, but I have not had any conversations with Arsene Wenger. So the question of working with him does not arise."
