PSG News: Emery confirms summer PSG exit

1 year ago

In the latest Paris Saint-Germain news, head coach Unai Emery has confirmed he will be leaving the club at the end of the season after two years at the Parc des Princes.

Emery was handed the reins in the French capital in 2016, arriving after three successful years with Sevilla, and he managed to win three trophies in his maiden season – the Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue and Trophee des Champions.

The 46-year-old has successfully defended the Coupe de La Ligue this term whilst also winning back the Ligue 1 title from Monaco, handing the club their seventh league crown.

However, failure to win the Champions League in this campaign, especially after PSG spent big on Neymar in last summer’s transfer window, has brought his tenure to an end.

Several names have already been linked with the position but Thomas Tuchel, who last managed Borussia Dortmund, is the firm 1/4 favourite with Sky Bet to be in charge for the first league game of the 2018-19 campaign.

Before Emery’s announcement on Friday, Tuchel had already been tipped to take charge of PSG and it appears he will handed the opportunity to lead the French giants.

However, Arsene Wenger recently confirmed he would be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season and there was no comment on whether or not he would be retiring from management.

The 68-year-old Frenchman would be a favourable appointment in the French capital and he is priced at 5/1 with Sky Bet to take the position.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte’s future is also uncertain beyond the current campaign and the Italian, along with Manchester United chief Jose Mourinho, is 16/1 to get the job.

The other contenders in Sky Bet’s market include Atletico Madrid’s Diego Simeone, former Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal (both 18/1) and Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino (25/1), amongst others.
