This time it's over.

Jean-Claude Blanc will no longer come to walk the corridors of the Parc des Princes, other than as a spectator.

The deputy managing director of PSG left his post on Thursday, a departure revealed a month ago.

He will join the English company Ineos in the coming days, where he will be in charge of all sports policy, from Monaco, where his offices are located.

In order to pay tribute to him, the Parisian club organized a reception this Thursday noon in a salon of the Parc des Princes in front of a little more than 200 employees who came to greet him, reveals the Team.

President Nasser Al-Khelaïfi split a few very complimentary words, stressing that "twelve years is not enough at the club", and that he was "part of the PSG family forever".

Three autographed shirts, one by Mbappé and his partners, the other by the women and the last by the handball players, were given to him as well as a poster with all the club's home shirts during his twelve seasons of presence.

Jean-Claude Blanc then took the floor to thank all the employees and to wish the best to PSG in the future.

A video of the best moments, in particular the signatures of Zlatan Ibrahimovic and David Beckham, passed by the Parisian club, was broadcast.

Two former PSG leaders, Frédéric Longuépée and Philippe Boindrieux, have been invited for the occasion.

Two men will be responsible for replacing the one whose departure surprised everyone.

Victoriano Melero, Secretary General who arrived in September 2017, and Marc Armstrong, Director of Sponsorship, will share his responsibilities.

Melero will oversee all support, financial and operational divisions while Armstrong will lead strategy across all areas of revenue generation.
