Embattled Emery still believes in PSG blueprint

Real have won the competition for the last two seasons, and are desperate to make history and claim their third on the bounce. They were almost defeatist, disoriented by the lack of a defined game plan or strategy. There is a small chance that Conte may just keep his job if Chelsea can finish in the top four and win the FA Cup.

The former Sevilla coach, however, is not getting worried about the possibility of being fired by PSG at the end of the campaign.

Fourteen points clear at the top of Ligue 1, the only real question left for PSG is whether it will complete another domestic treble. It is also reported that PSG have contacted the Italian about a possible appointment.

Conte enjoyed a superb first season in English football winning the Premier League title with an unfancied Chelsea side. The home crowd rained a chorus of boos on the Brazilian star who converted for his fourth goal of the game.

Emery added: "All players wearing the PSG jersey have a responsibility".

There also could be issues over his longevity and relationship with the club's prized asset, Neymar. Performing under pressure is something which can be improved upon through experience and players in these leagues are put in more high-intensity fixtures than teams like the Paris Saint-Germain's of this world.

"I think of the collective, the club. I spent some time, six months, with Bordeaux too but I was captain at PSG and that will always be special for me". Much of the build up had centred on Neymar. It will not be easy, but it needs to be the first point of summer surgery executed on the club. The Parisians were paralysed by their own incoherence.

The Blues sit fifth in the table and could miss out on the UEFA Champions League next season.

PSG have also let slip the quality of players they want to sign for Conte in the summer, with AC Milan's Gianluigi Donnarumma and Juventus' Alex Sandro believed to be on their shortlist.

Emery remains convinced PSG are heading in the right direction - no matter who is in the dugout. Madrid rolled on with French coach Zinedine Zidane leaving Isco, Luka Modric, Toni Kroos and Gareth Bale on the bench to opt for a more defensive midfield.

PSG are said to have contacted Conte's brother and whilst there's nothing concrete yet, the file leading to Chelsea's manager is thickening.

Emery is not perceived as being prone to self-doubt.
