Bazin named PSG president

Sebastien Bazin, managing director in Europe for Colony Capital, Paris St Germain's main shareholder, has been appointed club president following the resignation of Charles Villeneuve, Bazin said.

Asked whether he would confirm Paul Le Guen as coach, Bazin said: "I have a good relationship with Paul, but today, I don't know." PSG are third in Ligue 1, four points behind leaders Olympique Lyon.

Villeneuve, who took charge during the close-season, said he was resigning over a disagreement with the board after asking for more power at the club two weeks ago.
