Unai Emery declares PSG’s season a success

Unai Emery believes Paris Saint-Germain’s season has to be regarded as a success after they wrapped up the domestic treble by beating Les Herbiers in the final of the Coupe de France on Tuesday.

Goals from Giovani Lo Celso and Edinson Cavani sealed the 2-0 victory for PSG against their third-tier opponents on Tuesday and they have now won the domestic treble in three of the last four seasons.

Despite that success, Emery will be leaving the French capital at the end of the campaign, but he believes he will be departing after a largely successful final year at the helm.

“It’s a title and for us all titles are goals,” Emery told Eurosport.

“The team made a good path to get this title. I’m happy with the season.”

The one blot on PSG’s and Emery’s season was their Champions League exit at the hands of Real Madrid in March, with the former Sevilla boss acknowledging the 5-2 aggregate loss was a difficult one to take.

He added: “We can also talk about the little negative things like the Champions League. But I think this year the team played well, they always wanted to score. That’s why I’m happy.”

Emery has two matches remaining of his PSG rein, starting with Saturday’s home clash with Rennes at the Parc des Princes in Ligue 1.

Les Parisiens are priced at 1.25 to emerge from that contest with all three points, while Rennes are available at 9.00 and the draw is on offer at 6.00.
