Current manager Unai Emery.

Paris Saint-Germain Football Club is a French professional association football club founded in 1970, and based in the city of Paris in France. The club's first team play in the highest tier of French football, the Ligue 1.[1] Since its inception, Paris SG has had 26 managers. Unai Emery is the current manager.[2]

Pierre Phelipon was the club's first manager, as well as the only player-manager in the history of Paris Saint-Germain. He immediately guided Paris SG to the French top-flight in 1971 after winning its maiden trophy, the Ligue 2 title. Former Serbian player Velibor Vasović was PSG's first foreign manager.[3]

The club's longest-serving manager is Georges Peyroche, who led the Parisian side to its first major titles with two consecutive French Cup wins in 1982 and 1983. In 1986, Gérard Houllier was the first to make PSG champions of France,[4] followed by Artur Jorge in 1994, Carlo Ancelotti in 2013, and Laurent Blanc in 2014, 2015, and 2016.[5]

Ancelotti (once) and Blanc (twice) are the only PSG managers to have won the Ligue 1 Manager of the Season award while managing the club.[6] Blanc is also the club's most successful manager in terms of trophies won, with 11. In his three seasons in charge, Paris SG won three Ligue 1 titles, two French Cups, three French League Cups and three French Super Cups.[5]

Finally, PSG legends Luis Fernández and Ricardo were also successful managers. Fernández led Paris SG to five titles, most notably the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1996, becoming the only French manager to win a major European title with a French club. He also holds the club record for most games managed, with 244. Ricardo, for his part, guided PSG to the domestic Cup double in 1998 and to the Cup Winners Cup final in 1997, losing to Barcelona.[5]
