The likelihood of Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger taking charge of Paris Saint-Germain this summer is “zero per cent”, according to Patrick Kluivert.
The PSG director addressed the rumour following their 4-0 Coupe de France victory over Avranches on Wednesday night.
“Wenger at PSG? This is false,” Kluivert told TV channel France 3. “Not true. There is a zero percent chance that this will happen.”
It’s a move which Wenger has also denied, with the Frenchman insisting that there has been no contact with the Ligue 1 club.
The former Barcelona and Ajax Amsterdam man then revealed his satisfaction at the victory over Avranches.
“We are very happy,” Kluivert admitted. “We put in a good performance. The result was the most important thing.”
Speaking with Eurosport France after the final whistle, coach Unai Emery was full of praise for Avranches for making it a difficult cup tie.
“Congratulations to Avranches, they deserved to play against us in these quarterfinals,” Emery said. “In the first half, they showed a lot of desire because of the atmosphere created by their supporters. We scored and that made a big difference. We did not play as we wanted to.
“In the second half, we improved and controlled the game more. The result was logical. We deserved to win 4-0 because we played well in the second half but credit to Avranches all the same.”
