Neymar has not called because PSG clinched Ligue 1 title – Unai Emery

Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery has disclosed that superstar Neymar has not called him because past weekend’s Ligue 1 title triumph in excess of Monaco.

The French money club thrashed next-placed Monaco 7-1 to verify their seventh French crown past Sunday and the Brazil intercontinental showed himself actively playing poker with the match on a display screen in the track record for the duration of the rout.

French 1998 World Cup and 2000 European championship winner Christophe Dugarry, previously a Barcelona player, made headlines on Tuesday right after accusing Neymar of “spitting” on PSG by way of his conduct.

And when questioned by Cadena Cope radio if Neymar experienced called or messaged him because PSG’s title-clinching victory on Sunday, Emery reported no.

“I spoke with Neymar two or 3 months in the past to see how he was and what strategy he experienced of becoming a member of the group in schooling,” reported Emery. “The players have a chat, so Neymar has a direct conversation with the players, as well as the club and I.”

Emery, who didn’t point out he took an issue with the frequency of conversation with Neymar, went on to emphasise his excellent connection with the former Barcelona man and the dedication Les Parisiens‘ No. 10 has towards club and place.

“I have a pretty excellent connection with Neymar,” Emery reported. “He is fully committed to the team, to Brazil and he is worried about his recovery. Neymar is pretty eager to return and to play 1 game right before the conclusion of the season, that is what he told me when we chatted two months in the past.

“I see Neymar in Paris [in the long run], I truthfully experience that — the union in between him and PSG will continue. Neymar has distinct [in his head] what he needs at a particular person and collective stage, we spoke about it at the beginning of the season with him and the president and that venture stay in place.

Neymar is browsing to have the greatest part at PSG and PSG is browsing to have a large starring part with Neymar’s support. I would not understand a PSG with no Neymar and Neymar would not understand himself with no PSG.”

Having said that, Emery admitted his belief that Neymar will stay with PSG earlier the summer season could not discourage elite European clubs from screening the waters.

“It is standard that best clubs are fascinated by him,” reported the former Sevilla manager. “He is viewed as to be and is proving to be, amongst the most effective 3 players in the entire world. Of training course, at some point, best clubs can knock on the doorway.”

Emery rejected present-day backlinks with Sociedad but did not disguise he adore for the club, nor his excellent connection with the present-day management.

“I have not gained an offer you from La Real,” he reported. “I have a excellent get hold of with [Sociedad sporting director] Roberto Olabe.

“I have a dialogue pending with PSG mainly because I finish my agreement in June and we will see if we continue. I want to discuss with PSG right before I make a determination.

“I was with Real Sociedad for 10 many years. I normally say that 50 percent of my coronary heart is with the club.”

Emery can lead PSG to a next consecutive Coupe de France last underneath his management if the team can beat Caen away on Wednesday, with semi-skilled outfit Les Herbiers awaiting at Stade de France.


Paris Saint Germain have likelihood to reclaim Ligue 1 crown at home against previous many years winners Monaco

Paris Saint-Germain can correct revenge on Monaco for previous season’s shock Ligue 1 dethronement when the pair meets up with at Parc des Princes on Sunday. The French capital outfit and Les Monegasques have six matches to go in Le Championnat, together with this a single, and are separated by fourteen points coming into this weekend’s showdown.

A win for PSG will open up a seventeen-point benefit with just fifteen remaining to play for and a draw would necessarily mean that Monaco could only hope to end amount on points at ideal. Fundamentally, a do or die for the men from the principality, while Unai Emery and his players know that this is a fantastic likelihood to wrap points up in type.

PSG have crushed ASM each and every of the three times they have met this season — the moment in the Trophee des Champions in Tangier, Morocco, the moment in Ligue 1 at Stade Louis II and the moment in the Coupe de la Ligue closing at Matmut Atlantique in Bordeaux. Regardless of the odds currently being greatly stacked in Les Parisiens’ favour coming into this a single, even though, coach Emery is anticipating to be presented a tricky time by reverse number Leonardo Jardim and his aspect.

Monaco’s aim is to qualify for the Champions League, so we know this will be a really tricky match,” the Spaniard told journalists at his pre-match news conference on Friday. “We can win the Ligue 1 title at home, at the entrance of our fans. It is a fantastic chance — we want to win and play well.

Monaco is in fantastic variety, they have not missed in fifteen (notice: basically unbeaten in seventeen) league matches. They have been really steady, particularly in new months. We will consider winning Le Championnat in this article.

“Saint-Etienne won the Ligue 1 title 10 times, Marseille nine (notice: basically 10) and Monaco 8. PSG have six titles and want to win this season to keep catching up and to ultimately grow to be the most profitable team in league historical past. It is a crucial title for us, to keep transferring forward.”

Last time out, PSG appeared disinterested away at Saint-Etienne and were being blessed to occur away with a draw following Mathieu Debuchy’s late individual goal. Regardless of a one hundred percent win history against Monaco so far this campaign, they will need to demonstrate significantly bigger drive if they want to conclude the title race lifeless this weekend.

Emery rejected the plan of post-Champions League elimination and post-Coupe de la Ligue accomplishment complacency but needs his team to put “the worst first 50 % of football this term” guiding them and put on a demonstration for the homes supporters.

“We want to win every single opposition we play in,” replied the Basque tactician at Camp des Loges when asked about the dip in intensity at Stade Geoffroy-Guichard previous week. “Ligue 1 is really crucial for us. This is our most important opposition. All the players know this.

“The club needs to keep progressing, to keep improving, to grow to be the ideal in the environment, so every single opposition is crucial.

Kylian Mbappe can clinch the next piece of silverware for PSG against ex-club Monaco with a win on Sunday.

“We are centred on successful this weekend, we want to play well and reward our supporters, all those at Parc des Princes and all those viewing on television. I hope they see an aggressive team, taking part in fantasy football and developing heaps of likelihood to score.”

PSG‘s likelihood of beating Monaco yet again and wrapping up the Ligue 1 title against their closest rivals in satisfying trend has been boosted by the news that Kylian Mbappe has been passed healthy to face his formative club.

The France international struggled to be significant of an impact against Les Verts, but so did virtually all of his teammates, and the teenage feeling will no doubt come to feel motivated to assist his new businesses to win again the trophy that he helped Les Monegasques get the previous season. Mbappe was up for it in Bordeaux to encourage his team to Coupe de la Ligue victory and understanding that a Championnat crown is on the line in this article could assist a further virtuoso demonstrating.

Elsewhere, Emery has been boosted by the returns of Dani Alves, Julian Draxler and Thiago Motta, while Marco Verratti and Presnel Kimpembe are the only players lacking — apart from the recovering Neymar, who is now closing in on a return to the motion.

This season’s greatest objective disappeared when Real Madrid eliminated PSG in the Champions League, but this campaign is not absolutely missing for the French giants. The recovery of the Ligue 1 title is a single of the remaining goals this term, alongside with the Coupe de France, and the previous is a problem of when and not if.

PSG can answer that problem and tick a further matter off of their to-do list, environment themselves up nicely for next week’s Coupe de France semi-final.

France midfielder, Blaise Matuidi has sung praises of his national teammate, Kylian Mbappe, tagging him a phenomenon after the Paris Saint Germain forward scored a brace in France’s 3-1 victory over Russia on Tuesday.

The former PSG player linked up with Mbappe with a tipping pass for the 19-year old to score his second of the evening. While speaking with reporters after the match, Matuidi said: “I think that Kylian is getting better and better. He is a phenomenon — absolutely extraordinary.
“Aside from that, I am a bit of a grizzled old veteran so it is sometimes necessary to pull him by his ears to get him to chip in defensively.”
The two goals Mbappe scored made him the youngest player to score a brace for France in the postwar era. Team legend, Christophe Dugarry, who won the 1998 World Cup and 2000 European Championship with France, compared him to Brazilian legend Ronaldo when he was breaking through as a teenager.
Kylian, alone, took the offensive side of the game completely in hand,” Dugarry, who is now a pundit stated.

“He reminds of Ronaldo when he was just 19 years old — he is the same!”
The young sensation ended the game with a knock which might make him unavailable for the Coupe de la Ligue final against his old club, Monaco on Saturday.

“I got it wrong against Real, but it was a red card out of frustration and sometimes referees could be more tolerant,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“It was a bad reaction but I didn’t insult anybody, whereas Messi goes around pointing his finger in the referee’s face and doesn’t even get punished. But anyway, I need to improve.”
As compared to Messi who has only received four yellow cards and no red card this season, Verratti has been cautioned 11 times and sent off twice.

“We trained on Sunday, and we have one more session before the match,” Emery told journalists at Parc des Princes on Monday.

Neymar Might Go To Real Madrid

Neymar could be on his way to Real Madrid in a €250 million deal

Just few months ago, Paris Saint Germain made a massive statement of intent by signing Brazilian superstar, Neymar Jr from Barcelona in a £200 million world record deal. Only 4 months later, daily reports keep linking him with a move to Santiago Bernabeu.

The former Santos forward has made a spectacular start to life in Paris, after scoring 15 goals with 11 assists in 18 games. His addition has not only inspired an outstanding league run for PSG but has also reignited their dream of winning the UEFA Champions League.

Diano Gol and The Mirror reported that Real Madrid President, Florentino Perez has discussed the possibility of Neymar joining the European Champions in a €250 million move with Neymar’s father at a dinner. Although both reports didn’t confirm when this move is likely to happen, it is believed that this can be preparations for a possible transfer next summer.

Neymar Jr has formed an incredible attacking partnership with Uruguayan, Edinson Cavani, and young French sensation, Kylian Mbappe, a talented trio that can certainly cause problems for any side in Europe and can go on to win multiple trophies for Paris Saint Germain thus increasing the Brazilian’s chances of winning the Ballon d’Or.

Paris Saint-Germain vs. Troyes – Football Match Report – November 29, 2017


Neymar‘s fine strike helped Paris St Germain secure a 2-0 win over Troyes to move 10 points clear at the top of Ligue 1.

Both Lyon, who lost at relegation-battlers Lille, and Monaco, beaten away by Nantes, had failed to make up any ground in Wednesday’s earlier kick-offs.

It looked set to be a frustrating night for Unai Emery’s men as Troyes, who saw a goal ruled out for offside, produced an organised display at Parc des Princes before Edinson Cavani had his penalty saved.

Neymar, though, continued to live up to his world-record transfer fee when the Brazil forward lashed in a low, angled effort from just outside the box to finally break the deadlock on 73 minutes, before Cavani added a late second.

PSG, who had won away at champions Monaco over the weekend, started brightly.

Javier Pastore’s shot was blocked before Cavani fired over after being played in by a quickly-taken free kick.

Troyes just about cleared their lines after Angel Di Maria had raced clear, but was closed down by the Troyes keeper before Cavani’s pass failed to pick out Neymar with the goal unguarded.

The visitors, looking to build on the 3-0 win over Angers and keep moving up the table, almost snatched a shock goal after half an hour when Samuel Grandsir got clear to force a good reaction stop from Kevin Trapp.

When Grandsir did have the ball in the net soon afterwards with a close-range finish, the goal was ruled out for offside in the build-up.

PSG had the chance to take the lead five minutes before half-time when Cavani was tugged back by Karim Azamoum and fell to the floor.

However, goalkeeper Mamadou Samassa guessed right to make a fine low save as Troyes went into the break on level terms.

PSG continued to probe after the restart, but were again left unrewarded as Neymar flashed a 20-yard effort wide.

The Brazilian, though, managed to breakthrough in the 73rd minute when picking the ball up on the left, some 25 yards out, before powering forward and unleashing an angled drive across the keeper and into the far corner.

Troyes substitute Suk Hyun-Jun send a close-range header goalwards, which Trapp pushed away before again being tested by the South Korean.

Any hopes of a dramatic comeback, though, were ended a minute from time when Cavani latched onto a pass from Neymar, who broke down the left and cut into the penalty area, to slot past Samassa and continue PSG’s impressive form.

Serge Aurier wants move amid Man United Spurs and Inter interest – source


The FC boys discuss Unai Emery’s comments where he admits the players he’s chasing this transfer window.
ESPN FC Ligue 1 correspondent Julien Laurens breaks down the latest on the links between Paris Saint-Germain and Neymar.

Serge Aurier has informed Paris Saint-Germain of his desire to move this summer with Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan all keen on the defender, according to an ESPN FC source close to the French club.

Aurier, 24, has been plagued by controversy at Parc des Princes since early 2016 and it finally came to a head in March when the Ivory Coast right-back took nearly 10 minutes to be ready to replace Thomas Meunier at Lorient. 

The source said coach Unai Emery made it clear to the former Toulouse and Lens man at the time that Belgium international Meunier was ahead of him in his pecking order and PSG have since signed another right-back in Dani Alves.

Aurier has attracted attention from a host of European clubs in recent months, notably Serie A giants Juventus and AC Milan, and is not with the Ligue 1 giants for their International Champions Cup campaign in the United States at present after telling Emery he would prefer to stay in Paris to prepare his departure.

The source said that PSG have agreed to sell Aurier this summer and are looking for a figure in the region of €20 million to €25m for his signature with United, Spurs and Inter now the frontrunners to land him.

Jose Mourinho is interested in adding the powerful full-back to his squad this summer with France international Paul Pogba, Aurier’s close friend, in strong favour of any potential move.

Serge Aurier
Serge Aurier is now behind Thomas Meunier and Dani Alves in the pecking order at PSG.

Spurs are also in the market for a right-back after selling Kyle Walker to Premier League rivals Manchester City and the source added coach Mauricio Pochettino has shown interest in the PSG man as a replacement, while Inter have been in pursuit for the past few months.

According to the source, the issue making all three clubs — particularly the two Premier League outfits — hesitant to make a move for Aurier is the fact that he is still appealing against a convertible two-month prison sentence for allegedly attacking a police officer last year.

Aurier’s situation, which saw him barred from entering the UK for PSG’s Champions League clash with Arsenal last season, has yet to be resolved and is not expected to be taken care of until at least next month.

The source indicated that PSG expect to be able to push ahead with a sale once a decision has been made over Aurier’s appeal but that they are not optimistic of finding a buyer willing to commit to a purchase while the player’s judicial situation is still so unclear.

Aurier has made 57 appearances in Ligue 1 alone with PSG, scoring twice and notching two further assists.
