Club official statement

As part of Paris Saint-Germain’s continuing transformation on and off the field, after 12 successful seasons, Jean-Claude Blanc – Deputy CEO of Paris Saint-Germain – will bid a warm farewell to the Club to pursue a new professional challenge later in 2023.

Jean-Claude Blanc’s end date will be confirmed in the new year while he manages the upcoming transition to a new executive. PSG’s new Deputy CEO will be announced in the new year and will report to President and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaïfi.  

Further additional senior management arrivals to the Club are being announced in the new year, as the Club continues its transformation on and off the field, which began last summer with the signing of a new coach, football management team and a host of key players across the men’s and women’s teams.

President and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaïfi said: “We sincerely thank Jean-Claude for his fantastic contributions to the history and success of Paris Saint-Germain over so many years. The Club has developed enormously during this time. We are now perfectly positioned to take the Club to the next level which will be delivered by the new management team to be announced in due course. We wish Jean-Claude every possible success for his next professional challenge next year. He leaves with our gratitude, and will always remain part of our family.”

Jean-Claude Blanc said: “The last 12 seasons have been an amazing professional adventure and I am proud to have helped Paris Saint-Germain become the international sports powerhouse that it is today. During this period, the Club won an unprecedented 53 trophies across the football and multi-sports sections, while becoming one of most successful premium sports and lifestyle brands in the world. I would like to thank personally PSG President and CEO Nasser Al-Khelaïfi for his great leadership, his trust and friendship. I wish the entire PSG family every continued success in its next phase.”

Further announcements will be made in the new year.
