PSG sign Blanc for two years

Jun 22 2013, 3:47am CDT | by

Paris, June 22 (IANS) French football league winners Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have named Laurent Blanc as the new coach to replace Italian Carlo Ancelotti.

Paris, June 22 — French football league winners Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) have named Laurent Blanc as the new coach to replace Italian Carlo Ancelotti.

Citing sources close to the club, French daily Le Parisien said PSG and former coach of the French national team "have sealed their union" via a two-year agreement, reports Xinhua.

On its website, the daily added the accord will be signed early next week during which the new coach will be scheduled to hold his first press meeting at the Parc des Princes to outline his roadmap to boost the club's performance.

Blanc, 47, started his coaching career in Bordeaux in 2007. During his three-year spell as Bordeaux manager, he was named Ligue 1 Manager of the Year in the 2007-08 season and led the team to claim French league and cup title in the following season.

In 2010, the former French international centre-back managed the national team for two years.

He also earned 97 caps with 16 goals, including the first golden goal in World Cup history he scored against Paraguay in 1998. Blanc was a key member of the team that won the World Cup in 1998 and European Championship in 2000.

Now it is time for the Uruguayan striker to prove that actions speak louder than words. On Friday morning, French newspaper Le Parisien ran a lengthy interview with the PSG str ...

A Progress Report on the Early-Season Form of PSG's David Luiz

Oct 30 2014 6:48am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Since his arrival in the French capital for an exorbitant fee in the region of €50m, according to ESPN FC’s Mark Rodden, Paris Saint-Germain’s David Luiz has been the centre of attention at the Parc des Princes. Following his nightmare—along with the rest of his team-mates—in Brazil's 7-1 thrashing at the hands of eventual FIFA World Cup winners Germany this summer, many were simply waiting for him to slip up again. So far, he has shown no ill effects from that harrowing July night in Belo ...

Oct 27 2014 7:18am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Without both Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Edinson Cavani for Saturday’s home game against Girondins de Bordeaux, Laurent Blanc had to look elsewhere for Paris Saint-Germain’s match winner. It was Brazilian winger Lucas Moura that stepped up to the plate, scoring twice in the 3-0 win, and it finally looks like the 22-year-old is blossoming into a star at the Parc des Princes. This season, injury problems and this summer’s ...

Where Paris Saint-Germain Must Improve to Win Champions League

Oct 22 2014 7:06am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Sometimes in life, the football gods are against you. On Tuesday night, anyone who watched Paris Saint-Germain narrowly beat Apoel Nicosia would have noticed the other seven games serve up 39 goals to PSG’s one. At times it was hard to stomach. Only the most ardent of Ligue 1 and PSG fans would have stuck with the game to the end, and what would have been most apparent is PSG’s struggles to break down a well-organised side away from home. Something that neither Shakhtar Donet ...
