Tuchel: I am very excited to see Mkhitaryan and give him a hug

Borussia Dortmund’s head coach Thomas Tuchel has no hard feelings ahead of Friday’s reunion with Armenian international Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

“I am very excited to see him and to give him a hug,” he said speaking ahead of the International Champions Cup match against Manchester United in Shanghai. “He is and remains a champion and was a big factor in our outstanding season last year.

“We are not here to take it personally, since it comes down to financial matters and to sporting challenges. From my side there are no reservations, although I would have loved it if he would wear a yellow jersey tomorrow.”
