Paris FC in talks with Jean-Marc Furlan over managerial position

According to a report from Foot Mercato today, Paris FC are in talks with Jean-Marc Furlan, with the former Auxerre manager now poised to replace Thierry Laurey in the Paris FC dugout. Laurey will be out of contract next June, and the former Strasbourg head coach is not expected to renew his stay in the French capital.

Paris FC, who are usually contender for a promotion spot to Ligue 1, are having a troubled season, and are only tenth in the Ligue 2 standings. With Laurey out of contract this June, Paris FC have been looking for a replacement coach early on.

Furlan has reportedly been in talks with Paris FC since February. The 65-year-old manager is a free agent since his dismissal from the Auxerre dugout in October. Furlan has a reputation for being a expert when it comes to bringing a Ligue 2 team into Ligue 1, and has done so five times already: with Troyes (2005, 2012, 2015), Brest (2019) and Auxerre (2022). Paris FC have not played in the French top tier since 1979.
