    Tuchel committed to future at PSG after Champions League ‘accident’

    PARIS (AFP) – Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) coach Thomas Tuchel said he has no intention of leaving the French club in the wake of their exit from the Champions League at the hands of Manchester United.

    “I have a contract and I want to stay here a long time, grow and have success with the club, that is my goal, that’s absolutely clear,” said the German.

    PSG had been desperate to make progress in Europe after being knocked out of the Champions League last 16 in back-to-back seasons under Emery. They looked on course to reach the quarter-finals after a 2-0 win away to United in the first leg last month, but a 3-1 home loss at the Parc des Princes last week knocked them out on away goals.

    However, Tuchel insisted that the United game was “an accident”, with the tie decided by Marcus Rashford’s penalty.

    “It is difficult to analyse because in my opinion it was an accident,” said Tuchel.

    “Lots of people might say, ‘yes, but there have been lots of accidents at the same moment going back several years’, but for me and this team it was an accident, there is no explanation, we controlled the game.

    “We wanted to show that things are different this season, it was the moment to grow, to leave the doubts behind, but we were not capable of taking that step.”
