Wenger tipped for success as manager of France

The ex-Arsenal player Remi Garde, who is now coach at the French giants Lyon, believes that Arsene Wenger would be perfect to relace Laurent Blanc as manager of France after this summer’s Euro 2012 tournament.

“It could very well go to him,” Garde said “He’s very familiar with European football, world football and the players because he follows the French championship.

“He would, in the case of Laurent leaving, be an interesting choice for French football. He’s one of football’s greats.”
