Blanc CLears His Name Over Racism Issues

Laurent Blanc, the French football coach has been accused of trying to set up quotas cutting down the number of black and Arab players. Mediapart, an investigative website has published a transcript of a secret tape of the meeting where Blanc and some federal officials were heard discussing of secretly limiting the number of black and Arab players at training centers to 30%.

Recently, Blanc has offered an apology for the media and tv reviews that were released. He stated that the remarks being said were taken out of context. The situation really was to discuss the team’s problems especially the members with dual nationality.
