Former French central defender turned football manager –following his retirement in 2007 –Laurent Blanc has tied the knot! not! Reports from the Paris Daily News yesterday (April 1, 2014), suggest the former manager of the France national football team has secretly got hitched to his long-term relationship. Well by now you probably heard this was false but in all seriousness who is PSG’s manager dating?
Is he even thinking about the big step?
He has never been married do you think he will ever do it? Is he scare of commitment?
Blanc started his club career at Montpellier in 1983, when the club was in the Franch Second Division, and helped them to reach the top flight four years later. During his stay at the club, Montpellier became contenders for major honours and Blanc won the first trophy of his career in the French Cup in 1990, the year in which he was named French Footballer of the Year.
Back in December 2013 the 48-year-old infuriated many people after making what were interpreted to be patronising and sexist remarks towards a female journalist.
Blanc was quizzed by Swedish journo Johanna Franden from Aftonbladet over his tactics during a press conference and his response has angered and offended.
The France World Cup winner, who took over at the club in the summer, was asked about his decision to change his team’s formation from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 during the press conference.
The former Manchester United defender responded: “Women talking football tactics, it’s so beautiful.
“I think it’s fantastic. You know what 4-3-3 means – don’t you?”
What would his alleged fiancée would thing about that? Ouch!
More recently, Blanc shrugged off Jose Mourinho’s taunt saying his side’s display in their Champions League quarter-final will answer Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho’s doubts about the French league.
Laurent might have not tied the knot but PSG v Chelsea you don’t want to miss!
