Paris: Dijon have appointed Antoine Kombouare as their new coach following the dismissal of Olivier Dall'Oglio at the end of last year, the struggling Ligue 1 club announced on Thursday.

In a statement, Dijon said that former Paris Saint-Germain coach Kombouare, 55, would take the reins until the end of the season, with the option of another year should he save the club from relegation.

After getting off to a flying start this season with three straight victories, Dijon have won just once since €"against bottom club Guingamp €" and languish third from bottom in Ligue 1.

Last season Kombouare led Guingamp to 12th place, before being sacked in November with his team bottom of Ligue 1.

A league winner as a PSG player in 1994, Kombouare also won the French Cup as manager with the capital club in 2010 and was coach when Qatari investors took over the following year.

He was replaced by Carlo Ancelotti in December 2011 with PSG top of the league.
