France coach Laurent Blanc and
the French federation (FFF) had not yet decided whether the
former world champion would sign a new contract after his team's
Euro 2012 quarter-final exit, the FFF said on Thursday.
"[French federation president] Noel Le Graet and Laurent
Blanc have spoken at length on Thursday, June 28," the FFF said
in a statement on their website.
"After these exchanges, the FFF president and the coach have
agreed to think it over for a while."
Talking to reporters at the federation headquarters, Blanc
was a bit more specific.
"We agreed to think it over for 48 hours. We have not
decided anything yet. I think we will be talking to each other
again at the weekend," he said.
France were knocked out 2-0 by holders Spain in the
quarter-finals at Euro 2012 last Saturday.
Blanc's contract expires this Saturday.
