Tuchel Enthused Over Meeting with ‘Artist’ Neymar
New Paris Saint Germain manager Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that he has met with Neymar prior to taking the reins officially at the French club. The German coach replaces Spaniard Unai Emery as manager.
Tuchel says he is not afraid of Neymar’s reputation as a virtuoso, “I met him last Sunday,” he said in comments reported by L’Equipe. “It was a good meeting. He is an artist, an exceptional player, one of the best players in the world.
“He does not need special treatment, he must find a structure where he can express himself. I really liked the meeting we had. We will build a structure for him to express himself here. In my opinion, the great players are the easiest to manage.
“They know what to do. They have won a lot of trophies. I am not afraid of star names, of big names, they know what the high level is all about.”
