Domestic competition negatively impacts Champions League hopes — PSG & Bayern Munich

Under coach Unai Emery PSG’s grand project was bound to fail


Various outlets reported on discontent between the group of Brazilian players and other groups in the locker room. "The player explained it and I believe what he said". We will work with enthusiasm and motivation.

Faced with a goal deficit to overcome, PSG's tactics did not change to a more aggressive attempt to find the net.

"In Europe, you need the mentality but also the game". Questions over his tactics and control of the locker room swirled. "My concern is to prepare for the next match", Emery said.

Despite the results, alarm bells were ringing in various forms. On Tuesday night they didn't deserve us.

"I think of the collective, the club".

"Real faced a very weak opponent", the 71-year-old told Mediaset.

Emery added: "All players wearing the PSG jersey have a responsibility". During his time at Juventus he had a similar falling out with the Italian club's hierarchy over a perceived lack of backing in the transfer market.

The French outfit were dismissed at the Round of 16 stage after losing both home and away to the reigning European champions. We are in a process.

Bayern Munich may have impressive this season but they are the only German team to do so and now sit 20 points clear of what can almost be considered their league.

Back in 2013, PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi insisted that his club would be European Champions within the next five years. After a match like Tuesday's, experience dictates that speaking immediately in the aftermath is not always a good idea.

Emery is expected to leave his post at the end of the season, or perhaps even before then, after PSG were dumped out of the Champions League by Real Madrid.

Recruitment of the right manager is paramount as the project aims to overcome a period of stagnation.

"It is important to follow this path with these goals, with the (Ligue 1) championship and both the cups".

L'Equipe's front page is dominated by the news under the headline "Path to Conte".

The forward will become the most expensive teenager in football history when he completes his around €180m (£160m) move from Monaco in the summer, with PSG's concern surrounding the Financial Fair Play rules forcing the initial transfer to be that of only a loan deal.
