PSG deny Leonardo dispute
France Ligue 1,
Paris Saint-Germain owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi has denied rumours of a fall-out between the board and sporting director Leonardo.
Brazilian Leonardo was speculated to be under pressure in the French capital after the club failed to secure the Ligue 1 title, being beaten to the championship by Montpellier.
But Al-Khelaifi has rubbished the reports and says relations at Parc des Princes are as strong as ever.
"I will not answer the rumours but I can confirm that Leonardo will stay," he said.
"He has done an excellent job this season and has excellent relationships with everybody here in Qatar."
The PSG chief did not hide his despondency at failing to secure the French title but said he is pleased the club will be among Europe's elite next season.
"I am disappointed not to win the title, but very happy to have met the target that was the Champions League.
"We must commend the president of Montpellier, his team and staff. They deserve it."
