[Mainz Coach Thomas Tuchel Proud Of Lewis Holtby & Andre Schuerrle’s Germany Call-Ups] This nomination is a reward for their strong performances and this is also great for us as a club. Particularly since we have two players who, before this season, nobody would have had down as candidates for this. The other players in our team have also played their part in this. They have contributed to the development of Lewis and Andre because you can only shine when you are in a good team. Let’s not also forget that we now have 10 international players.
[Looking ahead to their match against Hannover at the weekend] To be able to survive against Hannover, we are going to have to latch on to our recent home games, and that also includes our last two

[Tuchel backs Schurrle to prove himself as Aubameyang replacement] Andre will be the one starting up front, assuming nothing weird happens on the training pitch. He interprets the striker role in his own way and can give us something extra. This is a big chance for Andre to show what he can do. He interprets the striker role in his own way and can give us something extra. This is a big chance for Andre to show what he can do. We have 18 games left to close the gap and catch the teams in front of us.

[Thomas Tuchel thinks Pep Guardiola’s Bayern Munich side were not as impressive as his Barcelona sides] They were incredibly consistent, but they were no longer entertaining romantics like at Barcelona or during his first six months at Bayern. I remember a game where Bayern were trailing and he played two strikers up front, I think Claudio Pizarro and Mario Mandzukic. At Barcelona, he would have rather lost as a protest than play with two big strikers

[Thomas Tuchel during the 2015/16 season in which the BVB boss lost his bet with Aubameyang that the striker would not score 20 league goals - he ended with 25] I’m very happy to be his coach. When you see how he set up both our goals in a 2-0 win in Mainz and how he celebrated, even though it was Marco Reus and Henrikh Mkhitaryan who scored, it warms my heart

[Thomas Tuchel speaks at his introductory press conference as PSG new head coach] This is Paris, it’s magnificent, the city of love, the city of light. It is a romantic city and a city for adventure. I would love our supporters to fall in love with the team and that the brightest players play here

[Marcus Thuram has, however, opened his goal account for the current campaign and taken in a memorable outing against legendary Italian goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon – with the 40-year-old PSG star a former Parma colleague of his father] Ligue 1 is a very tough championship physically, with very strong players, like Guingamp’s Marcus Thuram, who runs fast, is strong, dribbles well and is good in the air.

[Tuchel slams PSG arrogance but questions penalty decisions in Guingamp loss] I do not know if it’s deserved, we had a lot of chances. We played honestly with too much confidence. It’s hard to lose this match with three penalties. It’s a bit weird. The second seems questionable. There was nothing [there], it is a [normal] contact between the two players. They entered our box three times and won three penalties. We didn’t play with the necessary hunger. We lost the possibility of winning a trophy tonight. But in each defeat, there are things you can learn. It’s hard, but it’s necessary to keep growing, I hope it’s just an accident. We have to play with more consistency, we didn’t put the right ingredients in. We were too relaxed

[Thomas Tuchel on working with Kylian Mbappe] Everyone in the locker room knows how reliable and super important Mbappe is, but I don’t rank players. He still has things he needs to improve, even if that’s hard to believe! Everyone pushes him to his limits and he is able to do that. He’s of massive importance this season

[PSG boss Tuchel says Benzema one of the most underrated players in the world] It feels like he’s been at Real Madrid for 25 years! He’s top class and very difficult to defend against because he doesn’t only play as a number nine. He goes wide, he goes everywhere. He has a lot of quality and crosses well, he’s good at headers… what more can I say?
[About former Real goalkeeper Keylor Navas] Of course it’s special for him. He was Real Madrid’s goalkeeper for a long time and had a lot of success in that team.
The goalkeeper position in special because you have to take responsibility for your mistakes alone, but he’s very strong mentally – that’s why he played at Real Madrid and I’m happy he’s with us. He’s always smiling, he’s calm and has a great spirit

[PSG boss Thomas Tuchel comments on Edinson Cavani] Edinson Cavani is a little bit injured. He felt a little muscle pain after the penalty [against Galatasaray]. That’s enough in order for him not to be available

[Thomas Tuchel Says Edinson Cavani Is ‘Stronger’ After Staying at PSG in January] Whenever there’s competition it’s good. We need all the players. I’ve always said that. You can feel that Edi is stronger in training at the moment because things are clear after the [market]. It’s been like that for a few days now.
He made a very good entrance [in the game], he put in a very important goal. It’s good for him and for us. Because we need all the players with experience and quality like Edi. That’s necessary. They are in good shape and that’s good
