Share This Story

Laurent Blanc has reportedly been offered the chance to replace Raymond Domenech as France coach and will make a decision in the summer.

L'Equipe on Monday quoted France Football Federation president Jean-Pierre Escalettes as saying the ball is now in Blanc's court and he will decide at the end of the Ligue 1 season.

Speaking prior to Bordeaux's 1-0 win over Toulouse on Sunday, Escalettes said: "Laurent Blanc is under contract until 2011. There are four Ligue 1 games remaining, we must let him work in peace.

"Then he will decide. No one will decide for him."

Domenech, the often controversial incumbent France coach, is set to leave his post after the World Cup.
