Former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is set to be named new coach of PSG today.

PSG have called a press conference for Friday amid widespread reports Ancelotti is set to be appointed as their new coach.

Ancelotti was pictured with PSG officials in the French capital on Wednesday as speculation grew he was on the verge of signing a two-and-a-half year contract to replace Antoine Kombouare.

That would mean a return to the touchline for the Italian for the first time since he was sacked as Chelsea boss in May.
