PSG boss Thomas Tuchel admits fears over “annoying” Man Utd star

Thomas Tuchel fears “annoying” Marcus Rashford will wreck Paris St Germain’s Champions League hopes once again.

Manchester United striker Rashford has scored late winners on both of his last two trips to Paris to crush PSG boss Tuchel and his players.

PSG need to win at Old Trafford tonight to maintain their hopes of reaching the last 16, with Tuchel wary of Rashford being their nemesis again.

“The last two performances from him against us have been annoying,” said Tuchel.

“He’s a very young adult who takes his responsibilities on and off the pitch very impressively.

“I’ve met him three times as an opponent and every time I meet a nice, humble and calm person.

“I like this mixture. He’s a big threat with his speed, ability to score and finishing and determination.

“He’s very precise and super rapid on the counter attack.

“He has a big impact and it’s nice to see players like him do this from the academy of a big club like United.

“We want the team to feel free and disciplined to be engaged in a really tough battle.

“There are several reasons why things are a bit difficult for us at the moment.

“But here we are, it’s like a final against United at Old Trafford and one we have to win.

“We’re not here to make excuses and want to show what we are capable of doing.”
