- Dortmund boss believes it is “dangerous” to be flattered by Spanish Links, as he is entirely focused on Borussia Dortmund.
“It’s dangerous if you are flattered as a coach,” Tuchel told reporters.
“You lose focus on the important things. I read it as a rumour before our game in Ingolstadt and so I already said back then that it’s dangerous to admit it and to think about it because it takes on too much importance.”
“The essential [focus] is the work with my team every day and I don’t have any other thoughts.”

“Marco wants to win the Champions League in Paris, for now he absolutely won’t move,” he told Premium Sport.
“What bothered me was the reaction of the French radio and television commentators, not the club which has put him at the centre of their project and not the coach. Marco deserves respect.”
