Tuchel has been on a sabbatical since leaving Dortmund at the end of the 2016-17 season, having guided the club to DFB-Pokal glory and a third-placed finish in the Bundesliga.

Tuchel's last appointment came at Borussia Dortmund, replacing Jürgen Klopp, where he won the German Cup in 2017.

And Ronaldo, speaking before he handed the Ligue 1 Player of the Season award to his compatriot, said it is uncertain whether Neymar would depart the club after just one year.

The biggest challenge for Tuchel, 44, will be delivering success in the UEFA Champions League, something which evaded Emery as PSG crashed out in devastating fashion to Barcelona in 2016/17 and then again at the hands of Real Madrid this season.

PSG and Thomas Tuchel agreed on a two-year deal on Monday.

Elaborating further on some of the positives, the 46-year-old added: "Well I improved my French, I am feeling closer towards Paris itself, I now know how the sentence "Ici c'est Paris" really means something special".
