However, his team of stars have experienced a dip in form recently, surprisingly losing 2-1 to newly-promoted side Strasbourg before a 3-1 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich on Tuesday.

According to L’Equipe, PSG’s 3-1 defeat to Bayern infuriated President Nasser Al-Khelaifi, to the extent that he no longer believes Emery is the right man to lead the French club to European dominance.
