Tuchel Says Neymar And Mbappe Are Finding Their Foot Once Again
PSG boss, Thomas Tuchel believes that Kylian Mbappe and Neymar have established a good connection and partnership once again.
Both forwards found the net in the Parisians incredible comeback against Montpellier.
Paris Saint Germain recovered from an early slip to record a 3-1 win over their counterparts with the duo of Neymar and Mbappe combining effectively well in the final third.
The French and Brazilian have both suffered injury problems this term, limiting their playing time as strike partners.
Tuchel who sees them as an item says he can see them coming back on track.
“It’s not easy for them both,” the young boss told Canal+.
“They have both been away and are only now starting to really play together this season.
“It was hard for Kylian to play long minutes, while Neymar, who has more experience, responded very well in this difficult atmosphere. In the end, they made us win the match, right?”

Former Barcelona winger, Neymar found the net from a freekick position and the Brazilian suggested he had hoped to find that opportunity.
“Before the match, I was told that I was going to score on a free-kick,” Neymar said. “So I’m happy to have scored this nice goal, which was important for the team.
“It was a very complicated match. We had a good second half which allowed us to go for an important victory.”
Tuchel was full of praises for his players who did put in their best. He said:
“It was a great victory, a good game. It’s really hard to win here on a horrible pitch in a very hostile atmosphere.
“They put in a lot of intensity, but we responded by showing quality. We also put in intensity for 90 minutes, and it was necessary because, at the end, it became difficult for them to run.
“We gave the answer with our quality and mentality. We remained calm. It was an extraordinary match, a great victory deserved, and congratulations to my team.”
