PSG ready to replace Emery with Wenger

PSG ready to replace Emery with Wenger

PSG have yet to win the elite European club competition and have now exited in the last 16 for the past two seasons under the Spaniard.

Mbappe, who scored in PSG's Saturday stroll against the league's bottom side, has come out in support of Emery and reminded fans that when they lose, the players are just as responsible as the manager.

The former Sevilla coach, however, is not getting anxious about the possibility of being fired by PSG at the end of the campaign.

"After this elimination, criticism is to be expected", Emery said at a news conference on Friday. We still have other objectives, which we need to prepare well for.

"I think of the collective, the club. I am not anxious about my personal future, I am anxious about the club, the team, how to find the needed performance and how to improve".

He said: "My desire, my enthusiasm, is football, I am very motivated for the game tomorrow". However, the people involved with this project might change, even if the project itself does not change.

Neither Belgium global is said to be keen on joining the PSG project, but the future of both Belgium international's remains a subject of much speculation.

German midfielder Julian Draxler, who watched most of the second leg from the bench, claimed PSG had "offered much, much too little" against Real Madrid. UEFA's financial fair play (FFP) demands are likely to force the Championnat behemoth to part with some high-earning players (not such a bad thing), while they must maintain quality and fend off interest in star man Neymar - once he has recovered from surgery after an ill-timed fractured metatarsal in his right foot.

Despite a huge outlay on players since Qatar Sports Investments took over in 2011, while winning four domestic league titles PSG have failed to get past the quarter-final stage of the Champions League.
