Laurent Blanc, the coach of the France National Football Team has asserted his wish to stay on as the coach of the team even after the European Championships of 2012 in Poland and Ukraine.
The former Inter Milan and Manchester United defender has reiterated his desire to lead the team to the FIFA World Cup in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 2014 and wants to win the tournament as the coach of The Blues, having been a part of the World Cup winning side of 1998 on home soil.
However, the detriment to his wishes could be the contractual agreement between the French Football Federation and Blanc which expires after the end of the European Championships.
However, according to sources inside the French Football Federation, the Chairman is not at all keen to extend the contract of Blanc after it expires and has already lined up several possible replacements for the France National Football Team coaching position including big names such as Arsene Wenger.
Blanc took charge of the national team in the after math of the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa and inherited a divided locker room from former coach Raymond Domenech but he managed to turn things around on the field and is currently the 4th most successful coach in the history of the national team, according to the win percentages.
However, Blanc has had his share of controversy with the team and it is for these reasons that the Federation does not want to hold on to him after his contract expires.
However, even if his contract with the France National Football Team is not renewed, Laurent Blanc might not have to look hard for a job as he is already being considered to take over the reins of his former side Inter Milan in the summer.
