Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi says that he is "very pleased" with coach Laurent Blanc and believes that he has a long-term future at the club.

Paris Saint-Germain president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has hinted that coach Laurent Blanc could be offered a new contract.

The 48-year-old was appointed as the PSG coach in the summer on a two-year deal following the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid.

"Laurent Blanc is a great coach and deserves a long contract," he told L'Equipe.

"I am very pleased with his work. This is a discussion between PSG and the coach, not with the media."

PSG are currently four points clear at the top of Ligue 1 after 14 rounds of matches and have also reached the last 16 of the Champions League as Group C winners.
