PSG boss signs new deal
After young stars Mamadou Sakho and Christophe Jallet, Paris coach Antoine Kombouaré has become the latest PSG figure to extend his stay at the Parc des Princes.
After presiding over the Paris side for the 100th time as they ran out 3-1 winners over his former club Valenciennes on Saturday night, Kombouaré on Monday put pen to paper on a contract extension that sees him linked to the club for a further 12 months.
"Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the extension of an additional season for coach Antoine Kombouare," stated the capital club in a statement on their offical website. "Considering our satisfaction with the work undertaken, and for the sake of continuity, the club has decided to exercise the option for an additional year on the contract of Antoine Kombouare, who is now tied to PSG until June 2013."
Kombouaré took PSG to Coupe de France glory last season - his first season in charge after taking over from Paul Le Guen in the summer of 2009 - and this term his side will defend that title against Lille on May 14 while fighting it out with Lyon for a Champions League finish.
