Unai Emery is to leave his position as Paris Saint-Germain coach at the end of the season. The Spaniard will have spent two seasons at the club, winning the Ligue 1 Conforama title in his second year in charge.

Emery confirmed his departure to the PSG players on Friday and told journalists: "We have five matches left to play, including the final of the Coupe de France. I have asked the players to finish the season off well, with the same competitive spirit they have shown throughout. We lost to Real (in the Champions League round of 16) but Real are the best team in Europe."

Paris Saint-Germain Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaïfi said: "Throughout his two seasons at the head of our first team, Unai Emery was a model of commitment and ambition. His immense passion for football and his exceptional work ethic saw the club cement its place amongst the football elite, both in France and internationally. I congratulate Unai for his achievements with our project and, on behalf of the club, wish him every success for his future challenges."
