Under scrutiny for his choice to train again for Qatar, Laurent Blanc was warmly defended by Eric Di Meco.
Without a club since 2016 and his departure from Paris Saint Germain, Laurent Blanc signed his comeback on a sidelines during this month of December. The Frenchman has been appointed coach of Qatari club Al-Rayyan for the next eighteen months. A choice that has given rise to a good number of questions and criticisms.
But the 98 world champion also has his defenders … “I understand that for a year or two he had ambition and demands. I think his only mistake was not quickly understanding that he had to stay in the middle “, thus entrusted Eric Di Meco on the airwaves of RMC, before adding: “He is now in a different state of mind. He really wants to train. He may have an idea in his head. “
“He wants to train in optimal conditions”
And to continue by comparing Blanc’s trajectory to that of Xavi: “We could have had the same debate on Xavi, who could have started his coaching career elsewhere than in Qatar and we are talking about him at Barça … To sue him without knowing what is behind it is make a mock trial. He wants to train in optimal conditions. I find it hard to judge a man’s career and life. He does what he wants if he wants to go training in Qatar, he doesn’t hurt anyone. “
Laurent Blanc, it starts strong!
It’s official for Laurent Blanc!
