he knew AS Roma were in talks to hire his predecessor as France
boss Laurent Blanc, adding that he thought a deal was close.

young squad, finishing outside the European qualification slots,
in
sixth place.
They have set their sights on Blanc after making an
unsuccessful bid for Massimiliano Allegri, who is set to stay at
AC Milan next season.
"I know that they are on the right road," Deschamps, who
was Blanc's teammate i 1998 World Cup-winning France national
team, told a press conference ahead of a friendly against
Uruguay in Montevideo.
"I know that Laurent wants to get back on the bench, to
have a new opportunity to coach a team.
"Roma are a good club, although there is special pressure.
If it's confirmed, I'll be very happy for him".
Blanc won the French top flight and the French League Cup
with Bordeaux in 2009 during a three-year stint at the club.
He has not working since stepping down as France coach
after his side lost 2-0 to Spain in the quarter-finals of Euro
2012.
