PSG coach Tuchel rates Fabinho in Kante, Busquets class

PSG coach Thomas Tuchel admits he's a fan of Liverpool midfielder Fabinho.

Talking about his decision to field Marquinhos in midfield, the PSG boss highlighted the Reds midfielder as one of the best in the world in the holding role.

He said, "Marquinhos is very different to Giovani [Lo Celso]. He has the qualities we are looking for -- he is fast and strong in his head.

"A player who sacrifices himself willingly is really important. We see that with players like [Real Madrid's] Casemiro, [Liverpool's] Fabinho, [Chelsea's] N'Golo Kante and [Barcelona's] Sergio Busquets -- this is what sets this position apart.

"I think that Marquinhos has a lot of the qualities that make his predestined to play in this role."
