Unai Emery, the Paris Saint-Germain coach, is reportedly in the dark over the futures of sporting director Olivier Letang and the director of football Patrick Kluivert.
Earlier this week L’Equipe reported that Letang handed in his resignation while Kluivert is thought to be considering his future with the team after a largely fruitless season.
Responding to questions from a L’Equipe reporter at a press conference this week Emery was evasive on the topic of their future as well as the potential arrival of transfer expert Monchi from his former club Sevilla.

Speaking at Camp des Loges Emery said, “I do not know. I work with the club each day. I speak with Patrick, Olivier and the president every single day. I am talking with them about what is happening, the players’ form and matches.”
However, when pushed further about Monchi he continued, “I am working with Patrick and Olivier all the time! The Ligue 1 title and the Coupe de France motivate us. We are talking about nothing else.”
All he would say is that the club will continue to grow with new training facilities and said that in terms of the transfer market “PSG’s future is big.”
He praised the club at the moment saying, “The team is good, consistent. We want to maintain that. Results aid the team, even if things can be improved. The club and the team are stable.”
Emery also answered a question about Adrien Rabiot’s potential as a long-term replacement for the defensive midfielder Thiago Motta, “Adrien can play as a sentinel [defensive midfielder in front of the back four] but also as a No. 8. Thiago started out as a No. 8 at Barcelona. Adrien is progressing well in the middle. He is learning multiple positions. Versatility benefits both him and the team.”
