Laurent Blanc In The Running For Tottenham Hotseat

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 19 June 2012, 15:33

Laurent Blanc has emerged as a surprise contender in the running to succeed Harry Redknapp at Tottenham Hotspur. In the last couple of days Blanc’s odds have been cut down from 40/1 to just 7/2 with Paddy Power, as he becomes the second favourite behind frontrunner Andre Villas-Boas. The two managers, alongside former Schalke coach Ralf Rangnick, are believed to make up the three-man shortlist, while the original favourite David Moyes now seems to have dropped out of contention in the

Blanc took charge of France in the aftermath of their woeful World Cup back in 2010. He has since rejuvenated the team and they are currently on an impressive 23-match undefeated run. Blanc and France are currently top of Group D at the European Championships and need just a point to book their place in the quarter-finals. At the moment they are among the favourites to win the tournament and can be backed at 7/1 to go all the way. The former Man Utd defender has also previously tasted success with Ligue 1 side Bordeaux, with whom he won the league and cup double with in 2009.

Spurs will be eager to install a big name as they bid to keep their star players, including Luka Modric and Gareth Bale, and then begin their quest to finish in the top four next season. Blanc’s contract expires after Euro 2012 comes to a close and he is believed to be eager to return to club management. However, one stumbling block for Spurs is that they may have to wait to approach him as a lot depends on how France go far in tournament. Spurs may therefore not be able to interview him until the beginning of July, which may cause a problem or two.
