Patrick Kluivert leaves Paris Saint-Germain director of football role by mutual consent

Paris Saint-Germain’s dominance of French football was ended in stunning fashion by Monaco, who Leonardo Jardim led to the Ligue 1 title, although PSG won the Coupe de France and Coupe de la Ligue.

President Nasser Al-Khelaifi has backed Unai Emery to continue as PSG’s coach, but the club has replaced outgoing sporting director Olivier Letang with Antero Henrique in a period of upheaval at the Parc des Princes.

“The club would like to underline the quality of the relationships Patrick developed, over recent months, with the senior-team players and staff as well as with the administrators, educators and players at the youth academy and their families,” a PSG statement released on Friday read.

“The club would like to thank Patrick Kluivert for the great professionalism he always showed and wishes him all the best for the challenges he chooses to take on in the years to come.”

The former Netherlands, Ajax, Barcelona and AC Milan striker Kluivert was appointed to the role in July 2016
