PSG manager reveals the Manchester United player he doesn’t want to face

PSG manager Thomas Tuchel has spoken glowingly about Manchester United newboy Edinson Cavani by saying the player is one Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can rely on.

Cavani left PSG for Manchester United this summer after seven successful years at Paris and Tuchel is hoping he doesn’t face the Uruguayan striker tonight.

He said in a pre-match press conference: “He is a polite person. Hard, hard worker. He will be there for every training [session], first minute until last minute.

“Every game, first second until last second. You can totally rely on him.

“If you played for so long in a club like ours and if you have such a connection with the fans, it’s clear that you have character and deserve all this appreciation.

“Hopefully he will show – not (Tuesday), but from Wednesday on – he can convince all of you, I have nothing against that.

“But Tuesday it is not necessary to prove me right.”
