Former France coach Laurent Blanc has revealed contact with AS Roma.
Blanc was linked with the post after the 4-3-3 man was shown the door in February.
â€śItâ€™s true, there was contact,â€ť the former Napoli and Inter defender told Lâ€™Equipe. â€śHowever, we were not on the same wavelength.
â€śThe move didnâ€™t happen for various reasons on both sides,â€ť added the 47-year-old ex-Bordeaux tactician.
â€śI want to take on a challenge, to have ambitions but also time â€“ even if we know what time is like in football.
â€śIâ€™m not talking about five, four, three years, but a little timeâ€¦
â€śI miss football and the type of challenge a club can offer me, rather than the nationality of that club, will be what my decision is based on.
