Alessandro Del Piero is considered a legend for Juventus and Italy. In a recent interview, he admitted that he would like to play for Morocco or Saudi Arabia. He also talked about how players of today are protected more than they were a decade or more back.
Paris Saint-Germain President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has stressed that both Neymar and Edinson Cavani won’t be leaving Parc des Princes during the summer transfer window. The pair have been linked with moves to real Madrid and Atletico Madrid respectively this summer but Al-Khelaifi has insisted that the pair are content in Paris.
Speaking to reporters, he said: “Neymar? I’ve repeated myself 10,000 times already. He’s going to stay at PSG. Neymar’s tired of the rumours about his future. His father told me that his future is in Paris. It’s the Spanish media that are saying otherwise. If you believe them then that’s too bad. Cavani? Not only does have two more years left on his contract, but he’s also happy. He’s a great player, a fighter, the top scorer in the club’s history.”
AS Monaco boss Leonardo Jardim has dismissed the prospect of succeeding Unai Emery as the next manager of Paris Saint-Germain. Speaking in his pre-match press conference, and the Portuguese rebuffed suggestions that he is interested in become Les Parisiens’ next head coach, he said: “Perhaps he will be Portuguese. However, his name will not be Leonardo Jardim.”
Meanwhile, Emery had his press conference, shortly after Jardim’s exit, and when asked about his future, he replied: “I have experience in football. I know this. I am making the most of each moment. We have objectives and there is a title at stake here. If there are a lot of journalists, it is an important match. I have a responsibility to prepare the team well.”
Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani insists that the Champions League humbling at the hands of Barcelona was unfair owing to a number of wrong decisions made in the game.
Les Parisiens took a 4-0 first-leg lead against Barcelona in the quarter-final stage of the premier competition, and they appeared to be cruising towards the final four before a referee blunder cost them the tie.
