Arsène Wenger would make a great France manager, says Lyon boss
Lyon boss Rémi Garde believes France should appoint Arsène Wenger as the national team's head coach if Laurent Blanc quits
Arsène Wenger would make the ideal replacement for current France manager Laurent Blanc, according Olympique Lyonnais head coach Rémi Garde.
Blanc, 46, is contracted to the French Football Federation until after Euro 2012 but reports suggest the former Manchester United defender will step down after the tournament.
And former defender Garde, who played under Wenger at Arsenal after joining the north Londoners in 1996, believes the Gunners boss would be an ideal candidate to replace Blanc.
“Wenger as the new national team coach? I believe that position would suit him well,” Garde told French radio station RMC.
“He knows European football very well, and also has good knowledge of world football and the French players because he follows the league closely.
“He would definitely be an interesting option in case Blanc leaves his position. He is a very big name in the world of football.”◀ The Sport Review homepageNext story ►
