According to reports in France, the Paris St-Germain management has lost faith in their Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti after a disappointing start to this season. PSG's Qatari owners are reportedly disappointed with the former AC Milan boss after his failure to win them the Ligue-1 title last season and his failure to get consistent performances out of his squad so far this season.
PSG have already been knocked out of the French league cup and are in 4th position in the Ligue-1 standings at the moment, having lost 3 out of their last 5 games.
After having invested a heavy sum of money in securing the services of big name players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, PSG's owners are not satisfied with the returns thus far. It has been reported that Arsene Wenger, Pep Guardiola and Jose Mourinho are being targeted as possible replacements for the Italian.
L'Equipe claims that Guardiola is the favourite to take over as the manager of PSG while reports in Le Parisien suggest that it is Mourinho who has been earmarked for the role and could be given an opportunity to win a league title in a 5th different country.
According to the radio station RMC though, Arsenal's under fire manager Arsene Wenger is still in the fray for the job despite the Frenchman's commitment to stay at Arsenal till 2014.
It will be interesting to see how this saga pans out though with Ancelotti clearly feeling the heat in France. The Italian was quoted as saying, "It's a difficult time for us. At the moment we lack consistency, intensity and the taking of responsibility. My players don't form a team, they're still a sum of individuals.
"I have the impression that the players are not focused on the club's project. I have to quickly find a solution."
