It is "not certain" that Jose Mourinho will take over as Paris St Germain coach next season, according to club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

The Real Madrid boss has been widely tipped to leave his post with the Spanish champions at the end of the season, with PSG touted as a possible destination due to the riches of Al-Khelaifi and his Qatar Sports Investments consortium.

The QSI figurehead sought to play down the link after Tuesday night's Champions League win over Porto, but stopped conspicuously short of ruling out an eventual move for the Portuguese.

"Mourinho to PSG? It is not certain," he said, in comments reported by Spanish sports daily AS.

"It is the media who talk about it, not me. Mourinho is at Real Madrid and Ancelotti is with us."

Tuesday night's 2-1 win at the Parc des Princes saw PSG finish top of their Champions League group and Al-Khelaifi said: "It's a very important victory. I am very happy, but not just because we won.

"I am happy about the team spirit. I liked the reaction of the group (to Porto's equaliser). The players gave their utmost to search for this victory.

"We are in the last 16 as group winners, that is very important for us."

e'll be fine, no problem. If they do get relegated, he's definitely going to ask how anyone could ever have thought that Villa were going to be fine given their problems before he came.

toke though. Hmn. I don't think it was defending that made people dislike Stoke so much as the out and out cheating/nastiness they regularly displayed. That, and they kept buying the odd flair player and then ruining them (Oh! Tuncay, what were you thinking?).

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.
