Pochettino could bring identity to PSG

  • Real Madrid quartet facing axe if they lose to PSG, including Manchester United, Liverpool & Chelsea transfer targets

PSG need to capitalise on this and make the most of Spurs' failure to overcome Juventus to reach the Champions League quarterfinals by offering Pochettino the chance to fulfil one of his ambitions, but crucially to revitalise one of European football's most ambitious projects on the pitch.

PSG were knocked out of the competition on Tuesday night, losing 2-1 at home and 5-2 on aggregate to Real Madrid.

Despite the growing pressure Emery is on track to win a domestic treble this season, with PSG in the final of the Coupe de la Ligue and the Coupe de France semi-finals, while his side have a 14-point cushion in the league. "The people within that project could change, but the project itself is sound".

"Right now, I am part of the project and I am working as if I am going to be here for the rest of my life", the Spaniard said.

Emery also responded to criticism from Julian Draxler, the Germany global having indicated the PSG coach was too cautious against Madrid.

Julian Draxler was critical of Emery after the defeat on Tuesday, admitting that he was "surprised and a bit sour" to have been an overlooked substitute for so long before Emery sent him on towards the end.


"I spoke with the squad on Thursday", Emery said.

"I ask him to stay and let things settle down", Marquinhos said. "Tomorrow, we will have a good match, also for our supporters".

'I'm a better coach than Emery?

"The players are young, they can also say things that can be misinterpreted". The players must see the other objectives we are still fighting for, notably in Ligue 1.

The man from Murphy was perhaps a little naive during the Juve loss at Wembley, but has shown enough against the likes of Real (who were pushed into second in Group H by Pochettino's side) and Borussia Dortmund (who dropped into the Europa League) to confirm his status as one of the rising stars of the coaching world.
