PSG boss Thomas Tuchel thinks that the similarities between Mauro Icardi and Radamel Falcao are helping the Argentine’s partnership with Kylian Mbappe.

Mauro Icardi and Kylian Mbappe have struck up an amazing striking partnership at Paris Saint-Germain.

PSG boss Thomas Tuchel beleives there is a key element to loan arrval Icardi’s game that is helping.

In an interview reported by Goal, Tuchel feels there is a familiarity with Icardi’s style of play that is bringing the best out Mbappe.

He said:

“Yes, it’s a bit similar because Falcao is kind of similar to Mauro.”

“He really likes to play as number nine, and he can play alone.”

“Kylian moves more, he moves fast on the wings.”

“It’s a good combination, it’s good for both of them, they like to play together and they are dangerous together.”

“It’s good because we always have two players in the last third and it’s hard to defend against. It’s a good mix.”

Icardi is only at PSG on loan, and Mbappe has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.

Tuchel may have found his ideal strike force, but keeping hold of them is going to be his hardest task yet.
