After having kept Strasbourg in the elite, he can afford to go down one step.
The French technician Thierry Laurey will return to the Paris region, thirty years after being a player at PSG.
This time, the coach succeeds René Girard at the head of Paris FC.
Fifth in Ligue 2, the Parisian club got out of the climb after a play-off defeat in Grenoble (2-0).
The former French international (1st selection) has twice managed to bring up a team in Ligue 1: Gazélec d'Ajaccio in 2013 and Strasbourg in 2017. He also won a Coupe de la Ligue with the Alsatian club in 2019. At the end of his contract after five years in Alsace, Thierry Laurey is replaced on the Racing bench by Julien Stéphan.
Also spent on the bench of Arles Avignon, FC Sète and Amiens, the coach will be accompanied to Paris by his assistant Fabien Lefèvre, as indicated in the club's press release.
The resumption of the professional group will be held this Monday at the Orly training center, before a departure for a training course at Île de Ré on June 27.
Four friendly matches will be on the program during the pre-season: Châteauroux (N1) on July 4, Quevilly Rouen Métropôle (L2) on July 10, Stade de Reims (L1) on July 14 and July 17 against Créteil (N1 ).
A final preparation match will be played on July 18, but the opponent has yet to be determined.
The resumption of the Ligue 2 championship, the calendar of which will be unveiled soon, will take place on July 24.
Thierry Laurey is the new coach of Paris FC.
The French technician is committed for two seasons.
