BVB coach Tuchel: Only Schurrle could replace Mkhitaryan

Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel feels they’ve adequately replaced new Manchester United midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Tuchel believes Andre Schurrle is the ideal man to replace Mkhitaryan.

Speaking to Bild, he said: “With Mkhitaryan’s departure, we have lost a player who can play on the wings and there are not a whole lot of players like him. Schurrle is one of them, though.

“Players like them do not have an ego but still contribute a lot of goals. It’s always easier when you are a defender playing behind one of them.

“That’s why we so desperately needed Schurrle, because we lost Mkhitaryan playing like this.”
