Tuchel never in running for Arsenal.


Tuchel doesn't think he was meant to be Wenger's successor.


Paris Saint-Germain coach Thomas Tuchel insists he was never close to replacing Arsene Wenger at Arsenal.

The former Dortmund boss said he already made a decision to join the Ligue 1 champions before Wenger left the Emirates and he believes the Frenchman’s return to work is imminent.

"To be honest I made my decision before Arsene Wenger made his decision," he said as Sky Sports reported. "I never got in touch and I made the decision to move to Paris before Wenger took the decision to resign.

"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.

"He will keep on coaching. 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."
