Nantes looking at Laurent Blanc & Patrick Vieira to replace Christian Gourcuff – L’Équipe

L’Équipe report that Nantes President Waldemar Kita has identified Laurent Blanc and Patrick Vieira as his top targets to replace manager Christian Gourcuff, whose future is hanging in the balance following a 4-0 home loss vs Strasbourg on Sunday.

Kita is considering the situation from Paris currently, with Gourcuff’s team currently sitting X in the Ligue 1 table and the manager’s contract expiring in June 2021.

He is being supported in his search for a replacement by his faithful advisor and agent Mogi Bayat, who had suggested the Swiss coach René Weiler as a replacement, but the Kita family are not convinced.

There are serious questions over whether or not Laurent Blanc and Patrick Vieira would even be interested in the post.
