Tuchel says Areola will start over Buffon at PSG
When Gianluigi Buffon signed with Paris Saint-Germain, it seemed like Alphonse Areola would need a new home in order to further develop as a future French national team backstop.

Three matches into the season, Areola got his chance to overtake Buffon and the 25-year-old is yet to look back.
Thomas Tuchel’s seen enough, at least for now. From RMC Sport in France:
Areola’s taken the long road to this post, having been loaned to Lens, Bastia, and Villarreal. Twice-capped for France, he won the World Cup as Hugo Lloris’ deputy this summer.
And Chelsea’s goalkeeping coach, Christophe Lollicon, says he’s better than Lloris (not that a Chelsea man would dig at Spurs...) From HITC:
Buffon’s pretty good, so the situation could change at any time but Areola would have to open the door.
