Looks as if Tuchel heard some choice words towards his players. One faint audible shout of "you f'ing pussy" in GER from RB bench 2nd half. Would think it's that he's taken umbrage with.

Speaking after his side's triumph in Lisbon, he said: "It was between me and Julian.
"That is okay between two head coaches but then a third person interfered. I didn't like that but it has since been sorted out."
Julian Nagelsmann said: "We fouled a lot, you can see that statistically. That wasn't planned, we just often came too late into challenges.
"He complained because he wanted to protect his players. That's all normal. I think we had 34 fouls at the end of the day so you can say something."
Meanwhile, PSG will face either Lyon or Bayern Munich in the Champions League final on Sunday.
