Following Sunday’s 1-0 defeat by Marseille at the Parc de Princes, Thomas Tuchel admitted the French giants have lost the Cameroon captain alongside four other players this summer.
When asked about the Parisians’ transfer plans, the German tactician said; “Are there going to be new players? I really hope.
“It’s no secret, we lost five players including Choupo-Moting. It’s going to be complicated, we play a lot of matches. I don’t know if other teams that have played in the Champions League should play so much games.”
Since he moved to Paris from Stoke City in 2018, Choupo-Moting has been restricted to a substitute role in Tuchel’s team.
Out of the 31 Ligue 1 matches he played, the Indomitable Lions forward made 13 starts with 18 appearances as a substitute and he scored six goals in total.
