Kombouare to be given time

Paris St Germain sporting director Leonardo has moved to ease the pressure on coach Antoine Kombouare.

PSG have repeatedly been tipped to sack Kombouare and appoint a more high-profile coach to mould their newly-assembled squad.

The pressure is telling, too, with PSG failing to win either of their opening two Ligue 1 matches and only Thursday night's 4-0 win over FC Differdange in the Europa League play-off first leg offering any respite.

However, Leonardo, brought in to head up an overhaul of the club by PSG's new Qatari owners, has once again spoken in support of Kombouare.

"He is part of the project and we are currently building the club," he told L'Equipe ahead of Sunday's visit of Valenciennes. "There is nothing to change the current situation.

"The project, set up by the club, continues to grow. You have to be patient. I'm very optimistic about the coming matches and, in any case, there's no ultimatum to Kombouare in terms of results."
