Blanc on Roma short-list

Former France boss Laurent Blanc is a contender to replace Zdenek Zeman at Roma should the latter be sacked.

The club yesterday raised doubts over the Czech Coach’s future after they slipped down to eighth place in Serie A.

The likes of Marco Giampaolo, Alberto Malesani, Christian Panucci, Carlos Zago and Alberto De Rossi were all immediately paired with the job.

However, reports on Tuesday are suggesting that the 47-year-old Blanc is a possible target for the Giallorossi.

Blanc, who has a playing past with Napoli and Inter, bossed Bordeaux for three years before he became the French Coach in 2010. He stepped down from that post after Euro 2012.
