Paris Saint-Germain News: Meunier hints at Emery exit

11 months ago

In the latest Paris Saint-Germain news, defender Thomas Meunier appears to have revealed that coach Unai Emery will not be in charge next season.

Emery is currently in his second season at the Parc des Princes and is seemingly guiding the capital outfit to the Ligue 1 title.

They are 17 points clear of reigning champions Monaco having won an incredible 27 of their 31 top-flight games this term.

However, it is Champions League success that the owners crave and a failure to get past Real Madrid in the last-16 stage may well have sounded the death knell for Emery.

Rumours suggest he will be shown the exit door at the end of the campaign and, according to L’Equipe, Meunier has confirmed the reports by stating: “A lot of things will change, including the coach.”

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte or the man in charge of Manchester United, Jose Mourinho, are favourites to succeed the Spaniard, although both managers are under contract at their respective clubs until the summer of 2019.

Mourinho continues to state that he is at Old Trafford for the long run and, despite some ill-advised comments after exiting the Champions League to Sevilla, seems happy to continue the project with the Red Devils.

That leaves Conte as the obvious choice to fill the void, should it emerge, at PSG.

The Italian tactician has been unable to repeat his success of last season, when he guided the Blues to Premier League glory during his first season at the helm, and it is thought that he will leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the campaign.

Whether Meunier’s comments end up being correct only time will tell but, having plied so much money into the club, failure it make even the last eight of the Champions League was never going to be enough for the board.
