ARSENAL never spoke to PSG boss Thomas Tuchel about succeeding Arsene Wenger, according to the man himself.

Arsenal legend Wenger chose to quit the north London giants back in May with Unai Emery .
At the time, however, talk was rife the Gunners would go for Tuchel, who was out of work having left Borussia Dortmund the previous summer.
The German has since taken over from Emery at PSG.
And Tuchel has now revealed he was never approached for the Arsenal job.
“To be honest, I made my decision before Arsene Wenger made his decision,” he said, speaking ahead of their pre-season clash against the Gunners.

“I don’t know if I was ever meant to be his successor or not. I didn’t think about it because there was no question in the situation I was.”

Tuchel also backed Wenger to continue in football despite leaving Arsenal after 22 years two months ago.

“He will keep on coaching,” Tuchel added.

“It isn’t my right to talk about him but I imagine it must be a strange feeling not to manage the shirts from Arsenal because he was more than just a coach.

“He was Arsenal, he is a gentleman, one of the biggest coaches in the world and somewhere I have the feeling he isn’t finished yet.
