Unai Emery Unhappy with Tactical Show against Monaco

Paris St Germain suffered a shock 3-1 loss against Monaco in the league to lose their 100% start to the season.


The team had managed wins from the opening two games as expected. As the strongest team in the French league by quite a long distance, Paris St Germain are realistically targeting the Champions League in order to gauge the performances of new manager Unai Emery. The former Sevilla boss was brought in as the replacement for Laurent Blanc. After achieving three consecutive Europa League titles with the Spanish club,Emery was seen as the perfect candidate to get European success to the French capital.

The Swedish international will be out of contract during the summer, and there is a host of European club that might be interested in signing him.

This season the Red Devils have relied too much on Anthony Martial, and they will want a high-profile striker to help them compete for the title next season.

Ibrahimovic, on the other hand, has stated that he is still in talks with Paris Saint-Germain about a possible contract extension but that he is also considering other offers as well.

However, Manchester United scouts were not the only one present at the stadium as it is believed that Borussia Dortmund, Southampton, and Besiktas also have representatives present at the club. Read more »
