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.

PSG vs. Bordeaux: Key Issues That Will Shape Ligue 1 Game

Oct 24 2014 4:53am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Paris Saint-Germain welcome Girondins de Bordeaux to the Parc des Princes on Saturday for a mouth-watering clash between Ligue 1’s second and third-placed teams. The French champions are seven points behind leaders Olympique de Marseille and locked on 18 points along with Willy Sagnol’s men. With Marcelo Bielsa’s OM side taking on Olympique Lyonnais at the Stade Gerland on Sunday, there is a chance that a win for either side in this match would close the gap on Les Ph ...

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 D ...

Edinson Cavani Spares PSG's Blushes with Massive Late Winner vs. APOEL

Oct 21 2014 4:59pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Cometh the hour, cometh the man. Finally! Edinson Cavani’s 87th-minute strike was enough for Paris Saint-Germain to claim a fortuitous 1-0 away win over APOEL FC in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday night. The three points earned in Nicosia keep the French champions at the top of Group F, one point clear of Spanish giants Barcelona, preserving Laurent Blanc and his players’ hard work from their last encount ...

Apoel Nicosia vs. PSG: Lessons Learned from Champions League Game

Oct 21 2014 4:32pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After what was a hard-fought 90 minutes in Cyprus, Paris Saint-Germain were lucky to come away with all three points after their 1-0 win over Apoel Nicosia on Tuesday night. The home side held on for 87 minutes before Edinson Cavani improvised to get his right foot on the ball and put it beyond Urko Parso in the Apoel net. In fairness the Spanish goalkeeper had very little to do during the 90 minutes, and the home side will rue the ...

Despite injuries to several key players, PSG are still expected to defeat APOEL. Despite the fact that Paris Saint-Germain are riddled by injuries, this game still screams mismatch for APOEL Nicosia. PSG are the free spending French giant coming to Cyprus to sweep aside the little club that's trying to block their path to the knockout round.

Paris Saint-Germain will travel to Cyprus to take on APOEL Nicosia on Matchday 3 of the 2014-15 UEFA Champions League, as the French champions look to jump-start their campaign following some sloppy form. PSG lead Group F thanks to their big win over Barcelona on Matchday 2 but have struggled outside that match, managing only a draw against Ajax and losing the top spot in the French Ligue 1. APOEL are hardly giant slayers but have been dominant as usual in the Cypriot leag ...
