“Mateo Kovacic is absent, but he felt better already. Andreas Christensen is also not in the squad,” said the German tactician, quoted from the club's official website, Saturday (17/4).
Initially N'Golo Kante had the potential to catch up with his two colleagues. Later, there was a change.

“We got the green light, N'Golo can play,” said the architect.

He watched a lot of Barca matches in the Pep era. A team that is at the pinnacle of success by relying on a lot of academy products.
“That's an important lesson for me. I was also an academy coach and then head coach at Mainz,” said Tuchel.
