Telefoot on PSG
Following PSG’s Champions League elimination to Real Madrid, Sunday’s edition of Telefoot had a look at what’s next in Paris.
While PSG are set to scoop the domestic treble this year, that’s not enough to keep Unai Emery in his job.
Emery is a dead-man walking at the Parc de Princes, and the focus now is to work out who’ll replace him in the PSG dugout.
Tottenham’s Pochettino & Chelsea’s Conte
Telefoot failed to shine any new light onto the situation – to be fair the season still has a few months before it’s over.
Yet the well-informed French TV show continues to echo to rumours that Tottenham’s Mauricio Pochettino and Chelsea’s Antonio Conte are in the race for the position.

The other name on the list is Luis Enrique, while the former Barcelona boss is the only manager of the three who is currently available.
As for Pochettino, the Spurs manager is often linked to this position as he previously played for PSG in his career.
Moreover, could Pochettino really turn down the opportunity of managing players like Neymar and Kylian Mbappe?

Last week L’Equipe’s front cover announced that Chelsea’s Conte had been contacted after the Madrid defeat.
L’Equipe told their readers that Conte’s brother, Gianluca, has been in contact with PSG about their interest in Antonio.
L’Equipe spun the narrative that Conte is keen on the move. Financially Conte would get a huge salary is he joined the Parisians.
It was also announced that Conte’s agent, Federico Pastorello, was in Paris on Tuesday.
At the same time, Conte is been chased by the Italian FA to re-sign as the national team manager.
