PSG say they will show respect for French Cup

Facing third-tier side Les Herbiers in Tuesday’s (May 8) French Cup final will not only give Paris St Germain a chance to further establish their domestic domination but it will also offer departing coach Unai Emery the opportunity to make a triumphant exit.

Emery, whose contract expires at the end of the season, would like nothing better than achieving the domestic treble, with PSG having already won the Ligue 1 and League Cup titles.

The Basque, who led Sevilla to three consecutive Europa League titles before joining PSG in 2016, urged his players not to be complacent against a team who will have nothing to lose at the Stade de France.

Emery will have to do without the services of an injured Neymar and Marco Verratti, whose domestic season is over, in the final.

Les Herbiers coach Stephane Masala, who plans to use his tactical skills to cause an upset , is however more focused on what this game means for French football than on the result.

Motivation might be Les Herbiers’s best weapon as they face a team with a 540-million euro budget — compared to their more modest two million euros.
