Arsenal boss Wenger not interested in France vacancy

Arsene Wenger has moved to deny rumours he could be a candidate to replace Laurent Blanc as Head Coach of the France national team, insisting that he has a lot planned for the remaining years of his Arsenal contract, the Daily Mail has reported.

Blanc left his position after France were eliminated from Euro 2012 at the quarter-final stage by eventual winners Spain. The contract of the former Les Bleus captain expired and was not renewed following a tournament in which the Mail claims France were disappointing. The winners of Euro 2000 drew with England, beat co-hosts Ukraine and lost to Sweden in the group stage before being knocked out by Spain.

Wenger, speaking on French television where he had been working as a pundit, said there would be a number of contenders to replace Blanc but that he would not be one of them. Wenger added: “There are a lot of names. But me, I will be very busy with Arsenal were my contract still runs for two years.The Mail lists Paul Le Guen, formerly of Paris Saint-Germain and Rangers, Luis Fernandez and Marseille boss Didier Deschamps as the favourites to replace Blanc.
