Ancelotti unveiled by PSG… and Beckham is to follow
Paris St Germain have unveiled former Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti as their new manager, replacing Antoine Kombouare.
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.
It is the Italian”s first job since being sacked by the Blues at the end of last season.

Kombouare”s place at the helm has constantly been the centre of scrutiny this season despite leading them to the top of the Ligue 1 table at the winter break.
Kombouare oversaw a premature Europa League exit at the group stage, however, and the club”s ambitious new Qatari owners have sought to reinvigorate the capital club with high-profile names.
The former AC Milan boss could also be joined by David Beckham, who he coached briefly at the Italian club during his first loan spell at the San Siro, in the coming days.

The Italian was also a two-time Champions League winner during his decade-long spell at Milan.
