Verratti confirms PSG future

Marco Verratti insists that he and boss Carlo Ancelotti will be staying in France with Paris Saint-Germain.

Recent rumours have suggested that the tactician could be axed and, as a consequence, that would also lead to the player’s exit.

The former Pescara player was again linked heavily with Juventus this week, the club who courted him in the summer before PSG agreed to pay his €12m asking price.

“Come on, we’re only in December,” the playmaker told Tuttosport. “It’s pleasing to know that Juventus are following me because they are a great side, but I have to just think about PSG.

“You’ll also see that Ancelotti will stay here as well. He’s a great Coach and this negative period is certainly not down to him.

“Us players need to take responsibility for that. At times a Coach is kicked out because you can’t kick everyone out, but the worst is now behind us.”
