Former Paris St Germain coach Kombouare claims PL interest

Former Paris St Germain coach Antoine Kombouare claims to have held talks with three Premier League clubs last summer.

Former Paris St Germain coach Antoine Kombouare claims to have held talks with three Premier League clubs last summer.

He told L'Equipe: "After my sacking from PSG I had a six-month break. Then I wanted to coach in the Premier League, rather than France.

"I had contacts but it was never sorted because I was always the second or third name on the list.

"The contacts? West Bromwich Albion, Swansea and Tottenham. I went to London to meet officials, but it never came to anything.

"I didn't want to join a small club or a small European league, so I finally chose Saudi Arabia.

"Since my departure from Al-Hilal I have had some very serious contacts, but the projects didn't really excite me. I want to manage clubs playing at the top of their league."
