Unai Emery is convinced that Paris Saint-Germain are still growing after their 7-1 win against AS Monaco sealed them the Ligue 1 title
The newly-crowned ligue 1 champions defeated last season’s winners in a 7-1 thriller to secure their fifth league title in just six years with five five matches remaining.
PSG are also on the verge of completing a domestic treble in Emery’s first season in charge at the Parc Des Princes with the club having already won the Coupe de la Ligue earlier on and having progressed to the semi-finals of the Coupe de France.
Although their eliminated from the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage to Real Madrid remains a sore point for PSG and Emery, who is reportedly looking increasingly likely to be replaced by Thomas Tuchel at the end of the season, remains adamant that the club are still on the rise to greatness.
“I’m very happy tonight. The championship is the competition that demands the most consistency throughout the season. After the loss to Real Madrid, the team bounced back well. We showed our strength. We want to keep growing and continue writing our history, here in France and in Europe. The players were very focused tonight. They gave it everything for 90 minutes, to keep scoring goals, keep defending… Now we turn attentions to Wednesday’s semi-final of the Coupe de France away to Caen.” said Emery, according to the club website.
