It hasn't come as any surprise, but Paris Saint-Germain coach, Unai Emery, has formally announced his exit from the club at the end of the current season. His tenure has been under threat even since the French side were knocked out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.
"It's the best for everyone," he said to reporters at his press conference. "I have informed the players that, after meeting with the president and Antero (sports director), we have decided that I will not continue next season. "I thank the players, the president, Antero, the fans.
Emery, 46, had been at PSG since June 2016 and, although he has won most of the national titles - all except the 2017 Ligue 1 -, he failed in the Champions League, after being humiliated by Barcelona (2017) and then by Real Madrid (2018).
"Qualifying [against Real] was difficult," he continued. "After our great game in the first leg, we lost because of the referee."
Asked what it was like to manage Neymar, PSG's 222m euro headline signing last summer, Emery had a simple answer.
"I told Neymar to continue with the natural way he lives," he added.
