Rumour: Former Manchester United manager tipped to replace under fire PSG boss


According to reports in France, Paris Saint-German are considering former Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal to replace current under fire manager Unai Emery.

As per French football TV show Téléfoot, PSG’s Director of Football Patrick Kluivert has selected former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal as an alternative to displace under-pressure manager Unai Emery should the Ligue 1 side’s owners decide to dispense with him in the coming weeks.

Unai Emery was named the manager of the French club merely the start of the current season after replacing Laura Blanc, however, his owners are as of now considering ousting him due to a not as much as proper opening to the season for the acquiring the Ligue 1 title.

PSG suffered their fourth defeat in this season to Guingamp this weekend implying that Les Parisiens have won only once in their last five matches in all competition. PSG now sit third in the Ligue1 table and seven points behind leaders OGC Nice.

Patrick Kluivert has worked with the former Manchester United manager at the international level being the Dutch National and Lvg’s assistant and his good relationship with the veteran coach as well as his previous luxurious records of building the squad superbly has mostly led this decision. However, it is also rumoured that former Italy boss Fabio Capello and Ex-Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini are also in the shortlist.

The previous Bayern Munich boss hasn’t worked since being axed by Manchester United last season after failing to land them a top four spot, despite winning the FA Cup after 12 long years and many speculated that he may resign after failing to land a top-four finish. However, since the sacking, the Dutchman has allegedly made a u-turn and is on the hunt for a new job in any of Europe’s top clubs and PSG could be that sort of club who are competent for restoring the sort of fame that he was always renowned before the struggling spell at Manchester United.

The club’s authority see achievement in the UEFA Champions League as their main target and the French League Winners will face Spanish Giants Barcelona at the Champions League for the round of 16 after finishing second behind Arsenal.

And the appointment of the former UCL winner with Ajax could help the team to gain some more self-confidence to come back in the race for the glory in the coming seasons.
