Paris Saint-Germain is happy to name Didier Ollé-Nicolle as head coach of the Paris Saint-Germain Women’s team. The new Rouge et Bleu technician has signed a contract through to 30 June 2023.


Didier Ollé-Nicolle began his coaching career in 1991 with Raon-l’Étape. Under his guidance, the Vosges-based club climbed from the regional sixth division to the National third division. He then coached in Ligue 2, where he was named France Football Coach of the Year with Clermont in 2007, and in Ligue 1.

The 60-year-old has a wealth of experience coaching clubs internationally and also took charge of the Benin national team in 2014.

Didier Ollé-Nicolle will officially begin his functions on Thursday 15 July when the defending French Women’s D1 champions begin pre-season training.

“I am very happy to announce the arrival of Didier Ollé-Nicolle,” declared Ulrich Ramé, General Manager of the Paris Saint-Germain Women’s section. “This is a crucial step at the dawn of this new cycle for the Women’s section. Above and beyond his experience of professional football, his vision and ambition match perfectly with those of the club. He will build on the work of his predecessor, Olivier Echouafni, and on the quality of our playing squad to maintain our place at the forefront of the game both here in France and in Europe for the coming seasons.”
