Both men had good times in Germany until Tuchel left for PSG and Auba for Arsenal
Tuchel will once again be seeing his former favorite front man, Aubameyang since their separation in Dortmund.
The German coach is so fond of the striker who banged 79 goals in 95 appearances for Dortmund.
‘Back in the days at Dortmund, it was a pure pleasure to have him in the squad,’ said Tuchel.
‘Auba was a fantastic striker, a fantastic finisher on the pitch. But, more than that, he was a fantastic worker off the pitch.

‘I think he did not miss one single training in two years. Maybe he arrived five minutes late on the training ground, that can happen with him! But if he does this, he is in a hurry, he feels sorry, he still has a smile on his face.
‘It was a very reliable relationship because he delivered an unbelievable amount of goals, his speed was unique in the Bundesliga and he was a crucial player. A bit of a crazy guy, but nice crazy.
‘We still are in touch and exchange messages when one of us has a big win. In some ways, he will still always be my player, so I want him to succeed and have a good time wherever he is.
‘This contact never fully stopped and it’s nice to see him because he’s always on for a hug and it’s nice to see him laugh. But, of course, we want to stop him and there is no exchange now before the game.’
Asked if there are chances of him working with his former star man again, Tuchel replied; ‘Well he does not get younger, that’s the problem.’
