Blanc tightlipped over France future after exit


DONETSK, Ukraine (AP) -France coach Laurent Blanc remained tightlipped over his future after the team's 2-0 loss to Spain on Saturday in the European Championship quarterfinals.

Blanc's contract with the French Football Federation expires at the end of the month. He wanted a new contract before Euro 2012, but FFF President Noel Le Graet preferred to wait until after the tournament before making a decision.

"We're out of the competition and we're upset, so now is not the time to talk about staff and players," Blanc said. "We will analyze this Euro in the coming days. There will be some satisfaction and some disappointment, and you will find out what happens after."

Some English media recently linked Blanc to the vacant position at Premier League team Tottenham.
