Emery to stay, says PSG president

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi says that manager Unai Emery will still be at the helm next season.

The former Sevilla boss was brought in to take the club to the next level, but Champions League glory eluded them once again, while they were also beaten to the Ligue 1 title by Monaco.

But after defeating Angers 1-0 on Saturday to claim the Coupe de France, the PSG boss confirmed that they will retain the Spaniard for next season.

"Next season we would change some things but let's celebrate," he said. "There is one very important thing I want to say. Our coach will stay, I am 200 per cent sure.

"Everyone is talking on TV, I read the newspapers, they say we will hire coach x, y or z, but even if there is a lot of advice, Emery wants to stay here 200%.

"He wants to keep working with us, he is happy with us, we are happy with him. Next season will be better.

"It was not an easy season, we have suffered in the Champions League and Ligue 1 as we lost the championship.

"But you need to look at what we have done to review everyone's work. So for sure things will change as we need to.

"The important thing was to win the title tonight, for the players' confidence, they have worked a lot. They tried everything. After, you can win or lose, that's football. But it was very important winning this 100th Coupe de France."
