Manager Laurent Blanc has been the subject of plenty of praise for his impressive job done on Bordeaux, steering the club to second in the league in his first year in charge, winning Ligue 1 last year, and ensuring they are on track to do so again this season. The former Barcelona, Inter Milan and Manchester United player has been linked with taking over of the France job as well as other big clubs, but insists, with his inexperience, such opportunities would not be easy to come by.

"The market for coaches is smaller than the players, and more for a young coach with little experience as me. I have many ambitions but to achieve them know I have to get even many more successes,” Blanc said in Sport. “I’m under no illusions. The possibility to coach a big club will not come easily to me.”

Blanc also guided his club to a remarkable Champions League group stage run, where his side overcame football giants Juventus and Bayern Munich to finish first in the pack with an unbeaten record.
