PARIS (Reuters) - Former Paris St Germain boss Antoine Kombouare has been named Toulouse coach, the Ligue 1 club said on Monday.

The 55-year-old, who coached PSG from 2009-11, replaces Alain Casanova after he and Toulouse ended his contract by mutual agreement last week.

Toulouse are 18th in the Ligue 1 standings with nine points from nine games.

Kombouare, who also coached RC Lens, Strasbourg and Dijon in France, will be in charge for the first time when Toulouse host Lille on Saturday.
