PSG consider Pochettino and Conte as Emery replacements

Unai Emery's days at Paris Saint-Germain are numbered after the Ligue 1 side's Champions League elimination at the hands of Real Madrid.

Club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi stuck by the Basque after last season's loss to Barcelona, but he is now looking for a replacement in the Parc des Princes dugout, with Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte both being considered.

Pochettino is the leading candidate, as he'd bring an attacking football and has shown he can work wonders with young and emerging players, as evidenced by the fact that 14 members of the England national team were handed their Premier League debut by the current Tottenham coach.

The Argentine used to play for PSG and he remains in touch with some of the current directors.

Another option is current Chelsea boss Conte, who is set to leave the Blues at the end of the 2017/18 season.

With a more direct and defensive style of football, the Italian would be a different kind of option for PSG in their quest to achieve European glory.
