"Ideas can not be bought..."

Emery is unlikely to survive in Paris after they were knocked out of the Champions League last week at the last-16 stage by holders Real Madrid.

The absence of Neymar with a broken foot bone hampered the Parisians in the second leg as they went down 2-1 at the Parc des Princes and lost 5-2 on aggregate.

Mbappe, who scored in PSG's Saturday stroll against the league's bottom side, has come out in support of Emery and reminded fans that when they lose, the players are just as responsible as the manager.

With Sacchi's words in mind, PSG need new inspiration.

"The players are young and emotional, after a defeat we can say things that we regret". "The people who are in this project can change, but the project itself is very solid".

Emery is expected to depart at the end of the season and Conte, who is widely expected to leave his post at Stamford Bridge in the summer, has been earmarked as a potential replacement, along with his Tottenham counterpart Mauricio Pochettino.

French sports daily L'Equipe reported Friday that Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is being lined up to replace Emery.

Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaifi wants either somebody capable of commanding the respect of the players to produce better performances, akin to Real's Zinedine Zidane, or somebody offering fresh ideas, like City's Guardiola.

And now that he has failed that task for two successive years, the 46-year-old could be dismissed in the coming days. "I spent almost three years there (2001-03)".

"The project is PSG".

"The most important is the internal analysis, what needs to be done to change and progress". This summer is also a rare opportunity to preempt another European giant in snaring the coveted South American. The word "game" may be abstract, hard to describe but it has made all the difference tonight. Music without a score is not possible.
