He was however unable to emulate the European success he experienced at Sevilla with PSG, with a crippling defeat against Barcelona in the Champions League last season leaving his position perilous.

PSG also signed Kylian Mbappe past year, but France's hottest prospect could not help them reach the semi-finals, which was the team's goal this season. Have your say in the comment section below.

"There is extraordinary potential in Paris and this is the most exciting challenge that has come to me".

"He abides by very strong principles of playing spectacular and clinical football".

"His ambitious personality, his strong taste for attacking football and his strength of character are part of the style we have always sought at Paris St Germain". The Ligue 1 champions have failed to go past the quarter-finals of the Champions League since big-spending Qatar Sports Investments (QSI) took over in June, 2011.

He did an admirable job in charge of Mainz, before succeeding Jurgen Klopp at Dortmund in 2015.

While few are certain as to how Tuchel will adapt PSG's game, club president and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi is extremely happy to have snared his signature.

However, Emery - who left the Ligue 1 at the end of the season - insists that Neymar will remain in Paris.

Spanish newspaper Marca reported on Friday that the player's father and agent, Neymar Sr., has told PSG his son wants to leave immediately.

While there's no doubting Tuchel is a talented coach, there have been rocky spells in his career previously. Under his leadership in the current campaign, the team won the national championship, the French Cup and French League Cup. "I'm not a spokesperson, but I think next season will stay at PSG".

Emery also reserved a high level of praise for Neymar, ranking him alongside Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the best players in the world.
