Laurent Blanc's agent has denied reports the former France defender has been appointed as Paris St Germain coach.Blanc enjoyed a stellar playing career both domestically and internationally before being appointed Bordeaux boss in 2007. He led Les Girondins to second place in Ligue 1 in his first season before going one better the following campaign as they were crowned champions as well as winning the Coupe de la Ligue. Blanc was then confirmed as France coach in July 2010 ahead of the shambolic World Cup in South Africa, with Bordeaux receiving compensation from the French Football Federation. He inherited a team that had been riven by in-fighting and divisions but managed to lead them to Euro 2012, where they reached the quarter-finals only to lose to Spain. Blanc stepped down after the tournament.
