Without a position since leaving PSG in 2016, Laurent Blanc has decided to give himself a little more means to bounce back by getting closer to Jorge Mendes, as confirmed this Saturday Antoine Kombouaré on RTL.
Four years after leaving PSG, Laurent Blanc has still not found a bench. An eternity for a coach. However, his name comes up regularly when a position becomes available. But the leads never succeed.
In recent years, the former coach of the French team has been announced in the sights of Inter Milan, Roma, Valencia, Monaco, OL, Manchester United, Arsenal, Zenit St. Petersburg or more recently Fenerbahçe. A non-exhaustive list. And yet, the 1998 world champion is still waiting to find a new challenge.
“White has ants in his legs”
To give himself a little more means to bounce back, Blanc decided to get closer to Jorge Mendes, one of the most influential agents in the football world, mainly known for having a certain Cristiano Ronaldo in his stable. An information unveiled by Foot Mercato and confirmed this Saturday by Antoine Kombouaré on the microphone of RTL.
“Laurent Blanc is my friend, we spend time together. It is true that today he very much wants to return to a bench. He’s got ants in his legs. If he’s related to Mendes? Yes, that’s it. He would like to find a project where there is the possibility of playing the winner. Tickets are very expensive and there are people on the market, it’s very complicated,” explained the former coach of Téfécé. Two years ago, Blanc decided to end his collaboration with Alain Migliaccio and Jean-Pierre Bernès.
