Laurent Blanc has been announced as PSG's new head coach on a two-year deal replacing Real Madrid bound Carlo Ancelotti at the Parc des Princes.
"Paris Saint-Germain is delighted to announce the appointment of Laurent Blanc as coach for the next two years," an official club statement read.
"He will take charge of the squad on July 1, 2013, for the start of pre-season training."
Blanc enjoyed a highly successful playing career at both club and International level winning the World and European Cup with France in 1998 and 2000.
The 47-year-old then went on to manage Bordeaux winning the league and cup double in only his second season in charge.
