PSG Coach Unai Emery To Leave At The End Of The Season
Paris Saint-Germain head coach Unai Emery has announced he’ll leave the Ligue 1 champions in the summer.
Despite romping to Ligue 1 and the Coupe de la Ligue this season, the Spaniard’s reign has been overshadowed by failure in the Champions League.
In his two seasons in charge, the Parisians were twice eliminated at the last-16 stage of the competition, going down to Real Madrid this term having embarrassingly blown a 4-0 lead to Barcelona last season.
“I’ve told the players that I will leave,” Emery told the press on Friday. “Thanks to the president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, the sporting director Antero Henrique, the supporters and all the players for these two seasons.”
He offered his backing to the club in the pursuit of their future goals, the greatest of which is to emerge successful in Europe, while also reaffirming Neymar’s desire to stay in Paris.
“PSG have a solid project,” he continued. “Neymar wants to evolve and grow with the club.”
Meanwhile, with the prospect of completing a domestic treble is still very much alive – third-tier Les Herbies await in the final of the Coupe de France – and Emery wants his players to finish the campaign well.
Former Borussia Dortmund coach, Thomas Tuchel, has been strongly linked with replacing Emery at the Parc des Princes.
