New PSG manager Thomas Tuchel faces five issues upon arrival in Paris

New PSG manager Thomas Tuchel faces five issues upon arrival in Paris

Mbappe, who has scored 13 league goals, won the same award previous year when he helped Monaco to the title, and so follows Eden Hazard in claiming the young player gong two seasons running. Tuchel comes in after taking the reins at Dortmund from Jurgen Klopp in 2015.

Emery was named coach of the year after guiding PSG to a domestic treble. The reason, of course, is the failure of Carlo Ancelotti, Laurent Blanc and, most recently, Unai Emery in the Champions League. However, despite this success, the club and manager parted ways by mutual consent after clashing over transfer dealings. Somewhat ominously, Tuchel's time at the club also ended amid disagreements with the board over transfers.

Brazilian forward Neymar left Barcelona last summer to take on the role of leading man at Paris Saint-Germain, becoming the world's most expensive footballer ever in the process at £198million.

'I look forward to working with all these great players, who are among the best on the planet. "I am also impatient to get to know Parc des Princes, a famous European stadium and one that boasts an incredible atmosphere". "Along with my staff, I will do everything I can to help the team push the envelope right up to the highest global level". PSG has enormous potential and it is by so far the most exciting proposition in football.

Tuchel is one of the new breed of young German head coaches. Another possible destination was Arsenal, who are losing manager Arsène Wenger after 22 years in charge.

However, the former striker questioned Neymar's mentality since moving to the French capital, amidst persistent speculation over his future and links to Real Madrid. The 44-year-old has been linked to the job for weeks, as sources told ESPN FC in March that owner Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani decided upon Tuchel as Emery's replacement because he can speak French fluently and has always preferred an attacking style of play.
