Paris Saint-Germain boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed he will stick to one goalkeeper next season suggesting there would be no rotation.
Reports are rife the recent development was directed to veteran goalkeeper Buffon who may likely leave the French Champions at the end of the season.
Buffon only joined the French champions from Juventus last summer, but he has featured in just four of their previous 13 League games.
The Italian’s contract expires at the end of the season, and Tuchel made it clear he would no longer be alternated with Alphonse Areola.
“We’re perhaps the first club to always rotate our goalkeepers and it was made possible by two exceptional lads like Gigi and Alphonse, who have teamed up and supported each other,” he said at a Press conference cited on Football Italia.
“But we can’t keep going like this. We’ll change next season. The goalkeeper’s role is a special one and it’s not possible to change every two or three games.
“There will be no more rotation. I can’t say who the starter will be as I haven’t decided yet, but we certainly won’t change every three games.”
🧤 Regarding PSG's goalkeeping dilemma, Thomas Tuchel said, “We need a #1 next season. We cannot continue like this, we are the only club in the world to do it like this.” [@GFFN]
