Under pressure France boss Raymond Domenech has publicly declared that he will not resign from his post at any stage, no matter how unpopular he becomes with followers of les Bleus.
The 57 year-old has been under-fire even more than usual this week, after the nations unconvincing performances in World cup qualification, culminating in the furore that followed the tie against the Republic of Ireland.
In response, Domenech told French website l’express.fr – “I have never resigned, and I will never resign. The harder the pressure, the more I become motivated. I thrive on adversity. When everything’s calm, I get bored, I start worrying.”
“People have to stop dreaming. I’m not someone who walks away. With my players we want to achieve something momentous in South Africa. We’ll let a little time go by, see what this and that person is saying, and then kick on again.”
