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.

Ajax vs. Paris Saint-Germain, 2014 UEFA Champions League: Team news and game preview

Sep 17 2014 2:00am CDT | Source: SBNation

PSG haven't looked strong so far this season and they face a tough test against Ajax as they open Champions League play. Paris Saint-Germain have spent a lot of money over the past few seasons as they attempt to become one of the biggest clubs in Europe. While that financial investment has brought them success in Ligue 1, it still hasn't translated to the Champions League. It might be safe to say that Laurent Blanc needs a deep run in Europe this season ...

Why David Luiz Will Be a Huge Player for PSG in the 2014-15 Champions League

Sep 16 2014 8:43am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It is a transfer that has provoked much ridicule, with French champions Paris Saint-Germain seemingly paying well over the odds at the £40 million fee reported by BBC Sport for the services of regular Chelsea substitute David Luiz. When the Brazilian then went on to have a nightmare two games in the semifinal and third-place playoff of the World Cup, that fee began to look even more extortionate. PSG, though, clearly believe in his abilit ...

Sep 15 2014 6:07am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Hopeful teams throughout Europe get their Champions League campaigns underway this week and to call it a success this year, Paris Saint-Germain at a minimum must reach at the quarter-finals.
