Paris Saint-Germain manager, Unai Emery has stated that the Champions League is Real Madrid’s ‘girlfriend’ and must be ‘seduced’ away from the Spanish giants.
PSG were eliminated by Zinedine Zidane’s men in the knockout stage of the Champions League this season.
Zidane’s side appear in good shape to reach the final of this year’s Champions League, as they hold a 2-1 advantage over Bayern Munich following their clash at the Allianz Arena last Wednesday.
Emery, who will leave the Parisians at the end of the season due to his failure to improve the club’s fortunes in Europe, stated that the Los Blancos will win this year’s Champions League.
“The Champions League must be seduced, little by little,” Emery told a news conference.
“Patience and consistency is the key – it may be that it happens when you least expect it.
“Like a woman, the Champions League must be wooed, gradually. Right now, she is Real Madrid’s girlfriend – they have won three of the last four editions. That is the reality and perhaps they will win it again this season.
“Gently does it – this is not a joke but a metaphor.”
