Emery will leave PSG in the summer due to his failure to improve the club’s fortunes in Europe . He has claimed four of the five major honours decided in France since he arrived, but two last-16 exits on the big stage have seen him forced out of his post at Parc des Princes.
The Spaniard’s side were eliminated by defending champions Madrid from the competition this season, despite huge investment in the likes of Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, and he says the club will have to be patient to reach such heights.
“The Champions League must be seduced, little by little,” Emery said. “Patience and consistency is the key - it may be that it happens when you least expect it.
“Like a woman, the Champions League must be wooed, gradually. Right now, she is Real Madrid's girlfriend - they have won three of the last four editions. That is the reality and perhaps they will win it again this season.
“Gently does it - this is not a joke but a metaphor.”
Meanwhile, club captain Thiago Silva admitted that perhaps the PSG players have to take more responsibility for their failure.
Speaking after PSG rallied from 2-0 down to draw 2-2 at home to Guingamp on Sunday, the Brazil international centre-back told beIN SPORTS : "It's the choice of the club and I think they spoke after the defeat against Real Madrid.
"This week, they decided he will not stay with us next year but the responsibility is on us now.
"We change coach but we do not progress. Maybe we at home have to look and think about what we need to do more to improve next year."
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, former Borussia Dortmund head coach Thomas Tuchel and Monaco's Leonardo Jardim have all been linked with PSG.
