Kombouare, 47, succeeded Paul Le Guen in the PSG hotseat in summer 2009 and guided the team to Coupe de France glory last season.

They will have the chance to defend the cup when they contest this year's final against Lille on May 14, and head into the final five games of the Ligue 1 season in fourth place - still in contention for a Champions League spot and virtually guaranteed at least a Europa League berth.

''Paris St Germain is pleased to announce the extension of an additional season of coach Antoine Kombouare,'' read a PSG statement.

''For the sake of continuity and satisfaction with the work undertaken, the club has decided to exercise the option for an additional year under the contract of Antoine Kombouare, who is now tied to PSG until June 2013.''
