Posted on October 21, 2021 at 6:15 am by Th.B.

Occasionally announced back in Europe in high standing clubs, Laurent Blanc, who officiates in Qatar at Al-Rayyan, does not dream of taking the reins of a European cador.

After four and a half years of inactivity, since his departure from PSG in spring 2016, Laurent Blanc arrived in Qatar in December 2020 to take the reins of the first team of Al-Rayyan . Returning to competition, the 98 world champion seems to be enjoying training again and his name naturally comes up in the media when a position is to be filled or a coach is in the hot seat.

A return to Europe is “not on the agenda” according to Laurent Blanc

Although Laurent Blanc is finally back on a bench at Al-Rayyan, his name is occasionally linked to big European names like Manchester United or FC Barcelona where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ronald Koeman appear to be on an ejection seat. But for the former PSG coach, a new challenge in Europe is not on the agenda for the moment. “This is not topical. I am here. I fought to bring in good players. I enjoy training in Qatar. It will last what it will last, a year, a year and a half, two years, or two months … I don't know. It is a human adventure (…) It is not a lack of ambition, but it is a reality. I'm in Qatar and right now that's what interests me. “. Laurent Blanc confided in an interview with AFP.
