It is no longer news that PSG are set to partway with Unai Emery who has had a not-too-successful season at the Parc des Princes.
The manager was thrashed 5-3 on aggregate by Real Madrid in the Champions League round-16 tie and since then, there have been uncertainties over his future with the Ligue 1 runaway leaders.
PSG’s main target for the Basque-born manager while hiring him in 2016 was to at least qualify the team to Champions League final, which he has failed to achieve and that hasn’t gone well with the club’s hierarchy, though, he has won six trophies for the side since he took charge of the team.
Winning six trophies in two seasons is not a minor feat and that speaks volume about Emery’s desire to win at all cost —a trait which seems to be missing in Arsene Wenger and Conte’s character throughout the season.
Unai could also win his seventh title with the club next month when his men tackle Les Herbiers in Coup de France final match. Apart from the trophies won, Unai has led his team to an impressive 86 wins from possible 109 victories since he joined the club.
Another fact that makes him the ideal candidate for either Chelsea or Arsenal’s job is his ability to convince his employers to dance to his tune.
During the last summer transfer window, Emery was able to convince PSG board of directors to sign Neymar from Barcelona despite his huge price tag. The manager was also the brain behind the club’s successful move for France international Kylian Mbappe from Monaco, though it’s a loan move.
With Arsenal not certain of hiring Luis Enrique in the summer, it won’t be out of place to give an experience but underrated Unai Emery the chance to lead the Gunners for just a season to see what he’s capable of doing.
