Ex-coach Unai Emery reportedly tangled with Neymar, while French World Cup-winner Kylian Mbappe is also rumoured to have a fractious relationship with the Brazilian star

New coach Thomas Tuchel dismissed concern about dealing with Paris Saint-Germain's "big personalities" Friday, as he pledged to help Neymar bounce back after a difficult World Cup.

The 44-year-old German is taking on a star-studded squad including Neymar, the world's most expensive player, with a mandate from PSG's Qatari owners to land a coveted European title.

Ex-coach Unai Emery reportedly tangled with Neymar, while French World Cup-winner Kylian Mbappe is also rumoured to have a fractious relationship with the Brazilian star.

But Tuchel iisisted: "In my experience the biggest players are the easiest characters because they want to compete and they want to win."

"Of course we have very big personalities but I'm not worried about this," he added at the International Champions Cup in Singapore, where PSG play Emery's Arsenal Saturday.

"In the end I strictly believe that all of these guys were somewhere, sometime, some five, six-year-old guy with the ball under his arm, going round playing on the beach, around the houses, on the streets."
