Emery - PSG staying grounded

13th January 2018, 15:01 by Jack Ogalbe

Unai Emery says he has been impressed by the focus of his Paris Saint-Germain squad.

Les Parisiens have hit back after missing out on the Ligue 1 title, currently sitting nine points clear of Monaco, while they are also still in the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue.

They also remain in the Champions League hunt but face a tough task when they take on holders Real Madrid in the last 16.

The PSG players could be forgiven for becoming distracted by the hype surrounding the tie against Los Blancos but Emery says his players remain focused, insisting their main priority is Sunday's trip to Nantes.

He told reporters: "Paris attracts a lot of attention because Paris is a big club. The squad is very strong.

"The players are focused on the big challenges coming up, whether that be Sunday's match against Nantes or the Champions League tie versus Real Madrid. The players are very intelligent."
