- This time the English coach declared at a press conference that he has a great relationship with him and that it was a pleasure to train him
Thomas Tuchel is still longing for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, the forward of FC Barcelona. The German coach had him under his command when he directed Borussia Dortmund and now that Chelsea is looking for a striker, he has the Gabonese as a great objective.
In the press conference this Friday he referred again to the attacker culé, with whom he maintains, according to what he said, a great relationship. “Some players are still your players,” he said about the Barça 17. “I really enjoyed working with him. It was a pleasure. This has nothing to do with the current situation, but some players are still your players over the years because you were very, very close,” the Chelsea manager recalled.
Tuchel acknowledged that from the first moment he connected with the Gabonese striker, with whom he had a relationship when he arrived in London despite the fact that he played for Arsenal. “Immediately there was a great bond. We have a very close relationship,” he said.
At the moment, Barça continues to have Aubameyang and is working to be able to do without Memphis Depay. On the other hand, the player maintains the intention of continuing at Barça, and Xavi is counting on him. There is still a market and a dizzying offer from Chelsea could change the picture.
