It has been rumoured for months now, even before last season ended, that Unai Emery’s job at PSG was anything but safe. They lost the Ligue 1 title to Monaco, they got ridiculed by Barcelona at Camp Nou, and even just recently, that defeat to Strasbourg didn’t… go down well.
Marco Verratti didn’t avoid a question related to the situation of his coach, backing him to bring success, trophies, to the club.
His situation, we do not talk about it between us. He does a very great job
the Italian midfielder told L’Equipe, before going back in mind, to when Emery first took charge.
When he arrived, it was a bit difficult for everyone because great players were gone. It is not easy for him to come into this context, but I think we have improved a lot. He is a great coach and we trust him. If you want to create something important, you have to keep at it
the Italy international said, clearly urging the owner, the directors, those who make the big PSG decisions, to… take their time before jumping into any drastic move.
As for players who could leave Parc des Princes next month, Emery himself told reporters that there is no intention of selling Javier Pastore and Angel Di Maria.
The information that I have from them, they do not tell me that they want to leave. They are how they are in the team. With Hatem [Ben Arfa] and Lucas [Moura] we talked about the possibility of leaving, not with others
the Spaniard said.
