Renard also confirmed he has informed the France Football Federation, FFF, about his intentions.


“It’s a difficult job. If I had to be brief, I have in the back of my mind the 2026 World Cup in men’s football.


“I hope that it will be my third World Cup at the head of a men’s team. These are my personal motivations,” he said.


Renard will not be short of suitors. The former Zambia and Ivory Coast manager is reportedly a target not just for Nigeria, but also for Poland, South Korea, Cameroon and Morocco, in the event that Walid Regragui leaves his post.


Renard will look to guide Les Bleues to their first gold medal finish at the Summer Olympics, after which he wants to work on taking a men’s national team to the 2026 FIFA World Cup
