RUMOURS: PSG may turn to Van Gaal

Off the pace in Ligue 1, the Parisians are eyeing the former Manchester United boss as someone to revive their fortunes

Paris Saint-Germain head coach Unai Emery finds himself under pressure, and according to TF1‘s ‘Telefoot’ show, the Ligue 1 side see Louis van Gaal as a viable replacement.

Emery was brought in to replace Laurent Blanc in the summer, but after finishing in their Champions League group after drawing 2-2 at home with Bulgarian minnows Ludogorets, PSG also find themselves seven points off the pace of Ligue 1 autumn champions Nice domestically.

As such, the Spaniard’s position is under review as a midweek match with Lorient approaches.

PSG sporting director Patrick Kluivert, meanwhile, is reported to want Van Gaal to step in as Emery’s replacement if the former Sevilla boss departs, despite the Dutchman enduring a difficult two years at Manchester United.
