Trapp: Emery knows what he wants

Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Kevin Trapp says the appointment of Unai Emery hasn’t disrupted the squad harmony ahead of the new season.

Emery joins PSG with a stellar reputation after leading his former club Sevilla to three consecutive Europa League triumphs, replacing Laurent Blanc at the Qatari-owned Ligue 1 side.

Trapp feels Emery’s arrival has not changed the team’s objectives as they still want the European glory that eluded them under his predecessor during consecutive domestic treble winning seasons.

“There have been some changes over the summer, but the club’s objectives are always the same,” the German told Goal. “We want to win titles.

“Last year, we won four titles again. But I think, and everybody talks about it, the general objective is to go further in the Champions League.

“It’s going very well with Emery. It’s like we have known each other for years. He is very open, he talks a lot with us and he is making jokes in French.

“We are working very hard in training to be ready for the new season. He almost never stops talking during the training sessions, but it’s good.

“He knows what he wants. The players really understand what he wants. So we have smart players even if everything is not yet perfect in our game, in time we will get to do what the coach asks.”

Les Parisiens have signed Polish midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak, forward Hatem Ben Arfa and Belgium defender Thomas Meunier this summer as they look to add European silverware to their trophy cabinet.
