Unai Emery has announced he will leave French champions Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season.

Despite leading the club to its fifth league title in six years, Emery will step down from his role as head coach after the decision was made not to renew the two-year deal he signed when he arrived from Sevilla in 2016.

A statement from Emery read: “I have communicated to the players that I am leaving.

“I thank president Nasser Al Khelaifi, the director of sport Antero Henrique, the supporters and all the players for these two seasons.”

PSG disappointed in Europe once more this term, failing to progress beyond the last 16 of the Champions League after losing to holders Real Madrid, despite a summer of huge transfer spending.

Neymar’s arrival from Barcelona for a world-record transfer fee of £200m, combined with the deal to sign Kylian Mbappe from Monaco worth in the region of £166m, meant PSG were among the favourites for Europe’s elite competition.

During his two-year spell at the Parc des Princes, Emery has won the league and three domestic cups, with a fourth on the horizon against third division side Les Herbies in the final of the Coupe de France on May 8.
