Domenech set to leave French football federation

After a tumultuous World Cup, former France coach Raymond

Domenech is now likely to lose his job as a French football

federation employee.

Domenech was replaced by former Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc

after the World Cup, but he kept his job at the federation. French

federation president Fernand Duchaussoy, however, says he met with

Domenech last week and that a gentlemen’s agreement was likely to

be found within a month.

French newspapers reported after the World Cup that Domenech

could receive up to ?2 million ($2.5 million) in severance.

France failed to advance past the first round in South Africa,

and Domenech was criticized for his passive attitude.
