Paris, March 23: Ligue 1 leaders Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have shrugged off news that former Barcelo head coach Luis Enrique will steer the team from next season, Le Parisien has reported. PSG's current coach Ui Emery is unlikely to have his contract, which will expire this June, renewed following the exit from the UEFA Champions League at the hands of holders Real Madrid, reports Xinhua news agency. The French media on Thursday listed a few favourites to take over the capital team, including Enrique and current Chelsea coach Antonio Conte. Enrique, free of contract at the end of last season, cooperated with PSG star Neymar and other Brazilian players during his spell in Barcelo, but he could go to Chelsea instead of PSG, according to Le Parisien.
Carlo Ancelotti, who departed from Bayern Munich last September, was also on the hunting list of PSG, where he left in 2013. No agreement has been reached between the Italian and PSG in a contact phase, but some club officials have expressed their encouragement to Ancelotti on a possible return. IANS
