Paul Le Guen will stand down as coach of Paris St Germain when his contract expires at the end of this season, club sources told AFP on Tuesday.
A former France international defender who made 343 appearances for PSG, Le Guen began his coaching career at Rennes but made his name in a three-year stint at Lyon during which he led the side to three league titles.
After a disastrous eighth-month spell in charge of Scottish giants Rangers, Le Guen returned to PSG in January 2007, narrowly sparing the team from relegation in his first two seasons and securing the League Cup in 2008.
This season has seen the capital side challenge for top honours with a much improved side and with four games to go until the end of the season they are in fourth place eight points behind leaders Marseille and Bordeaux.
L’Equipe sports daily said that Le Guen’s fate was sealed after a stormy meeting he had with club chairman Sebastien Bazin who told him that he would no longer have the final say in transfers and coaching staff.
