Thomas Tuchel is quite unhappy with January transfers
Paris Saint-German made just one signing during the winter transfer window, a lack of action that made manager Thomas Tuchel take a stand and explain his discontent on the whole situation.
The German manager feels that his team needed more reinforcements ahead the second half of the season and the club’s inaction during the January transfer window has left him an unhappy man.
Argentine midfielder Leonardo Paredes is PSG’s only new name this winter, while Timothy Weah was loaned out to Scottish Premiership side Celtic. While the Ligue 1 title seems a formality, Paris Saint-Germain has to pass by Manchester United in the Champions League. A difficult task and Thomas Tuchel knows he could have needed extra help.
The person to blame seems to be sporting director Antero Henrique, as he was unable to get the manager’s choice deals over the line.
“If you are asking if I am completely satisfied overall, no, I am not. I am not angry about the transfer window. January is always super complicated. Who wants to lose or sell a player? Nobody does”, said the 45-years old coach, according to Goal.
Thomas Tuchel continued and added that he has a close relationship with Antero Henrique and although they have a similar agenda, their ideas on how to get things done are totally different. The German insisted that he knows the January transfer window can be very difficult, but reminded that PSG’s sporting director knew about his wishes since last summer.
And the former Borussia Dortmund manager continued to speak about delicate subjects from inside the club. Thomas Tuchel got to the Adrien Rabiot topic and said that the midfielder’s situation remains the same, as he has been ordered to not field the 23-year-old due to contract issues. He has accepted the fact that the Frenchman won’t make any more appearances for PSG this season.
