Verratti denies friction with PSG coach

Italy international Marco Verratti insists there is no problem between him and Paris Saint-Germain coach Unai Emery.

The midfielder reacted badly after being replaced after 60 minutes during the clash with Marseille last weekend.

The Italy international's reaction was followed by reports claiming that he had an argument with Emery, but the player has since rejected the rumours.

Verratti told Goal France: "This is not true. I was frustrated with myself because I wanted to help the team out.

"It was said I was angry with the coach because I did not want to leave the pitch. To go off because of a physical problem was unthinkable for me. I am angry because every time I take a kick I have to go off and it is hard to accept.

"With the coach, we saw each other the next day and we could not understand what was happening."
