Paris Saint-Germain boss Laurent Blanc has been publicly accused of sexism after sarcastic sensual josh directed towards female Swede reporter, Johanna Franden who quizzed him about his team’s tactical formation.
Franden works for Swedish newspaper Aftonbladet, and she asked the former France manager about his decision to switch from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3 in a recent game.
But Blanc gave a rather fiddling response by saying: “Women talking football tactics, it’s so beautiful.
“I think it’s fantastic. You know what 4-3-3 means, don’t you?’
Franden replied by saying: ‘It is my job to know what it means’, before Blanc continued to patronise her.
“I mean, there’s a lot of ways of playing. Haha –just joking.’
It might interest you to know that Blanc has been criticised for the exchange in the French media and on social networking sites after his words were reported on Monday.
