Laurent Blanc quits PSG manager post after 3 seasons

Laurent Blanc quits PSG manager post after 3 seasons

France

After 3 years at Paris St-Germain, Laurent Blanc has finally left.

The manager, who joined the club in 2013, led the side to three consecutive Ligue 1 titles , two Coupe de France victories and three Coupe de la Ligue successes.

In February , he signed a new 2 year contract with the club, but came under pressure for failure to impress in the Champions League.

The club’s president Nasser Al- Khelaifi had hinted at changes earlier this month.

The 50 year old had previously held a spell as manager of France, but stepped down after losing the quarter finals of Euro 2012, to eventual winners Spain.

Former Sevilla boss Unai Emery, is highly likely to replace the Frenchman at the club.
