Bordeaux coach Blanc flattered by Man Utd link

Bordeaux coach Laurent Blanc admits he was flattered to be linked with the vacant assistant manager's job at Manchester United.

"I'm not going to play a hypocrite," he told Ouest France. "Of course, when my name is put forward to coach, one day, Manchester United, I am flattered.

"Am I currently actually capable of doing it? I am not convinced.

"I have to learn my craft.

"Moving to a big foreign club? It is still too early, even if it pleases me.

"I am pragmatic. I won't coach for 20 years. But I want to achieve things at the highest level."
