Louis Saha wants Laurent Blanc to remain as France boss
Departing Tottenham striker Louis Saha hopes that France manager Laurent Blanc does not take charge of the White Hart Lane outfit.
The former Manchester United defender is one of the contenders to replace Harry Redknapp but Saha, who is unlikely to be offered a new deal by the north Londoners, thinks he should remain in charge of his country.
“He’s a top manager,” Saha told TalkSport.
“He’ll always have interest. I can imagine him being in the Premier League because of his experience. I want him to stay in the job for France because he has been doing a terrific job so I wouldn’t like him to go to the Premier League yet.”
