PSG Ready to Axe Unai Emery as Coach

Iran News - - SPORTS -

PARIS (Dis­patches) Paris Saint-Ger­main are con­sid­er­ing dis­miss­ing Unai Emery as coach ahead of the Jan­uary trans­fer win­dow. The con­tin­gency plan, de­vised by sport­ing di­rec­tor An­tero Hen­rique, has been de­vel­oped amidst in­creas­ing ten­sion be­tween Emery and the Qatar-owned club’s su­per-stel­lar squad.

Emery’s po­si­tion has been under threat since PSG handed over a 4-0 first-leg ad­van­tage at Barcelona in last sea­son’s Cham­pi­ons League be­fore los­ing the French ti­tle to AS Monaco. While a short­age of de­sir­able re­place­ments last sum­mer helped the Span­ish coach sur­vive into a sec­ond sea­son, the club’s scep­ti­cism over his abil­i­ties cou­pled with the global record ar­rival of Neymar have un­der­mined Emery’s dress­ing room au­thor­ity.
