“In a respectful atmosphere, negotiations were completed on 27 June. An agreement, by common accord, preserves the interests of both parties.
Assistant coach Jean-Louis Gasset and head fitness trainer Philippe Lambert, also leave the club as part of the agreement.
As the club decides to head in a new direction for the management of the first team, it wishes to thank Laurent Blanc and expresses its gratitude for the work accomplished over the last three years by Laurent and his staff.
During his three years at the club, Laurent Blanc won 11 trophies, including two national quadruples, and left a significant mark on the great history of Paris Saint-Germain.
“As we embark on a new chapter in the development of the club, I would like to thank Laurent Blanc for everything he has achieved over the last three years, both in terms of the playing style and results, declared Paris Saint-Germain Chairman and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaïfi. I wish him the best for his future challenges.”
