PARIS, April 21 (Reuters) - The chairman of struggling Paris St Germain, Alain Cayzac, has decided to resign, the Ligue 1 club said on Monday.
'Alain Cayzac has decided to hand his resignation to the board of directors, who will meet in the next few weeks,' the club said in a statement.
'Paul Le Guen, whose motivation and energy are intact, has been confirmed in his duties,' it said of the coach.
The main shareholders, who met on Sunday, also decided to appoint a 'sports advisor' whose task will be 'to give a new impetus to the club until the end of the season'.
A 3-0 defeat at Caen on Saturday left PSG in danger of relegation.
The team, French League Cup winners three weeks ago, lie 18th in the Ligue 1 standings, three points adrift of Racing Lens, the first club above the drop zone, with four games to play.
Angry PSG fans painted graffiti at the club's training grounds after the defeat, one of them bearing the warning 'PSG in Ligue 2 = Riots'.
