Paris Saint-Germain manager, Unai Emery has stated that the Champions League is Real Madrid’s ‘girlfriend’ and must be ‘seduced’ away from the Spanish giants.
PSG were eliminated by Zinedine Zidane’s men in the knockout stage of the Champions League this season.
Zidane’s side appear in good shape to reach the final of this year’s Champions League, as they hold a 2-1 advantage over Bayern Munich following their clash at the Allianz Arena last Wednesday.
Emery, who will leave the Parisians at the end of the season due to his failure to improve the club’s fortunes in Europe, stated that the Los Blancos will win this year’s Champions League.
“The Champions League must be seduced, little by little,” Emery told a news conference.
“Patience and consistency is the key – it may be that it happens when you least expect it.
“Like a woman, the Champions League must be wooed, gradually. Right now, she is Real Madrid’s girlfriend – they have won three of the last four editions. That is the reality and perhaps they will win it again this season.
“Gently does it – this is not a joke but a metaphor.”
Carabao Cup: Sarri reveals who caused Chelsea’s 1-0 loss to Tottenham
Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri, has blamed the referee for Tuesday’s 1-0 loss to Tottenham in the Carabao Cup.
The Italian slammed the use of the Video Assistant Referee in the first leg of their semi-final tie against Mauricio Pochettino side.
He said that he does not think English referees are able to properly use the system.
Harry Kane was awarded a penalty kick which ended up as a 1-0 victory for Tottenham.
Kane was tripped up by Chelsea goalkeeper, Kepa Arrizabalaga in the first half of the clash at Wembley Stadium, prompting referees to review the sequence.
There were questions over whether the England forward was offside on the play but, after seeing the video, the referees awarded a penalty.
Sarri was able to re-watch the play after the match and noted that the officials failed to spot Kane who was on offside position.
“A few minutes ago I watched the video from our camera. It was offside. Our camera was in line with Harry Kane,” Sarri told Sky Sports.
“Offside with the head, the knee. Offside. It was really important the linesman carried on running, he had a big impact on our defenders.
“I don’t think English referees are able to use the system.
“If you are not sure with the system, you have to follow the ball and at the end of the action decide. But he stopped it and didn’t follow the ball – for our defenders it was offside. I don’t know about the goalkeeper but sure the defenders.
“I think they have to study the system.
“It’s very strange in the Premier League there isn’t VAR and in Carabao Cup there is the system. It’s very strange for us, the players and referees.”
