Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel reacts to Lionel Messi move to former club PSG

Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has had his say on Lionel Messi’s move to Paris Saint-Germain.

Tuchel spent around two years at Paris Saint-Germain before losing his job in December of last year.

But he quickly landed on his feet, taking over Chelsea just a couple of weeks later and going on to win the Champions League.

Tuchel spoke about PSG‘s signing of Messi, the Argentine signing for the Ligue 1 giants on a free transfer yesterday after it was confirmed he could not return to Barcelona.

“Lionel Messi is good for any team in the world,” Tuchel told Canal+ via Diario AS.

“It makes me a little sad that Messi couldn’t finish his career at Barca. Messi and Barcelona were one.

“Like all coaches, the PSG coach (Mauricio Pochettino) will have to work.”

Messi has signed a two-year contract with PSG and the move will see him link back up with former Barcelona teammate Neymar.
