The former coach of the Girondins de Bordeaux and Paris Saint-Germain, Laurent Blanc, is now the coach, since the end of 2020, of the Qatari club of Al-Rayyan.
In a long interview at The team, Laurent Blanc confided in his return to the sidelines, after a prolonged stoppage following his dismissal from PSG, in 2016: “I regained pleasure in working, the taste of training, of leading sessions. I have more fun than at PSG. I have more work in the field. Before, it was Jean-Louis (Gasset) who mainly did that. There, we share the groups with Franck (Passi, his assistant trainer). Philippe (Lambert) takes care of the physical preparation. Guys really want to learn. “
If he recognizes that the level of his team is far from exceptional, Laurent Blanc praises the state of mind of his group of players to Al-Rayyan: “There are sometimes bugs but we can not blame the players. I even have semi-pros who work in the army or the police. It’s disciplined. There are funny situations, but I live both an unprecedented life and professional experience. “
According to The team, Laurent Blanc, under contract until 2022 with the Qatari team, wants to join a European club this summer.
