Paris St Germain have appointed experienced administrator Jean-Claude Blanc as their new general manager.

The club's owners, Qatar Sports Investments, confirmed on PSG's official website that Blanc would be assuming the role that will see him oversee all areas of the club's activities away from on-the-field affairs.

Blanc has previously worked as the chairman of Juventus, as well as being the chief executive of the French Tennis Association.
