When asked about the news, Tuchel joked: “Benjamin Button. Thiago Button of football!

"I know how much work, how much professional attitude is behind that. It is a miracle in a way. He came to this league, this schedule, this approach and intensity of a daily business, in the every end of his career. This was very brave."
