Playing his first game of the season for PSG, Neymar produced a moment of magic in additional time, s coring an acrobatic goal to lift PSG to a 1-0 win on Saturday .
Tuchel said the 27-year-old needed to accept being booed by supporters, but he praised Neymar's response.
"It was not easy because he is a sensitive guy, but he did well," he told a news conference.
"That's the life, it's not easy for the fans too during the transfer market. That's why we have to accept their behaviour. I don't want to judge their behaviour, it's like that. It was not easy.
"He can play better, with more dribbling and more runs. He needs several games in order to find the right rhythm and his physical abilities to make our game faster with his sprints.
"He has the quality to decide the destiny of a game. I am happy he showed that in the last minute."
To Neymar's credit, he did seem to accept his fate with the supporters following the match.
The Brazilian did not place the blame on the fans and promised that his focus from here on would be with PSG, while also claiming that he would "be playing each match as if we were away from home" , an acknowledgement that he does not expect the treatment to change any time soon.
While the Neymar drama between Neymar and the fans doesn't seem like it's leaving any time soon, PSG supporters can at least be happy with their position in the table.
