Tuchel was named as PSG's new manager following the departure of Unai Emery at the end of last season.

According to Italian publication Calcio Mercato, Tuchel has told star midfielder Marco Verratti to slim down if he wants to part of the first team plans next season.

Verratti is currently on holiday as Italy did not qualify for the 2018 World Cup, which is currently underway in Russia.

The same report claims Tuchel was assessing all of the players' weight on his arrival to the French capital.

This is an indirect way of telling him isn't in his plans for upcoming season. No coach ever told a player to lose a weight and use him in history, same affair wid local coach Pitso to George Lebese. Remember Jabulani Eduard Manqele ? Remember Benni McCarthy? The list is endless, this player should look for a new home or else be prepared to be sidelined by new manager.
