Gary Neville believes Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will be the favourite to become Manchester United's next permanent manager if he masterminds wins against Chelsea FC, Liverpool FC and Paris Saint-Germain. So I want my players to go into this game confident and embrace it.
"You can't just place all the burden on him but we're talking about Kylian Mbappé - he has his own qualities, it's not really his job to replace Cavani and Neymar, and he can't do all three things at the same time", said Tuchel. We are used to playing attacking football - it is in our DNA. "Of course they will, you can not replace quality players like this, Neymar is one of the key players in Europe and we miss him a lot and now we miss a second key player with Edinson". Changing now would be hard.
" To change that is really hard but I'm sure there will be times where we will defend deeply". We're here to score goals.More news: Teenager, 18, finally gets vaccinations and attacks his anti-vaxxer parents
Tuchel added that it was wrong to expect Kylian Mbappe to make up for the injured South American pair. They play with a lot of confidence.
"It had been 10-and-a-half years since I arrived in England".
Yet while PSG's manager does not want to overburden the 20-year-old World Cup-winner, Tuchel wants his team to wrest the initiative from United. "Now I wanted a new challenge and a new adventure".More news: Diana Ross Celebrates 75th Birthday With Family and on Grammy Stage
Previous exits at this stage of the Champions League to Barcelona and Real Madrid are not on Draxler's mind ahead of Old Trafford, but he would prefer to have Neymar and Cavani alongside him in Manchester. It will be different again this time as it is not the same team, nor the same situation.
"We would love to have Neymar and Edinson, but we have to show that we can do it without them". "I have spoken with him a bit about United, and although I will not tell you what he had to say, he respects this club".
"But we also know that they've got plenty of very good players to come in".More news: Aaron Ramsey transfer: Juventus announce four-year contract with Arsenal midfielder
"Going into this game [with PSG] I don't think we could be in a better frame of mind with confidence and form so we are really looking forward to the next few games coming up".
