Laurent Blanc is flavour of the month at the moment after winning the league with Bordeaux and currently standing top of his Champions League group, which contains Juventus and Bayern Munich.

Back in May, RoM looked at the reasons why Blanc should replace Sir Alex Ferguson, but Eric Cantona wants him to be the next manager of France.

“I think that Raymond Domenech is the worst coach in French football since Louis XVI,” added Cantona, referring to the French king who was executed by revolutionaries in 1793 and is commonly depicted as an indecisive, dithering monarch. “If it was up to me, I’d put Laurent Blanc in charge of the France team. He continues the season with Bordeaux, he wins the league with Bordeaux and he wins the World Cup! I’m not the only one who thinks that.”
