France Under-21 coach Raymond Domenech has revealed that he has been approached by Fulham to discuss the possibilty of succeeding Jean Tigana as manager of Fulham.

The west London Premiership club confirmed earlier in the week that they would not be renewinmg Tigana’s contract.

Domenech admitted he is keen to find out more about the Premiership club.

“It’s true,” Domenech told L’Equipe newspaper.

“It’s an interesting offer and I have not closed the door. I am ready to talk about it.

“One of the reasons isthat it is maybe time to test on the field the knowledge I have accumulated as coach at the national coaching centre.”

Domenech has been in charge of the French Under-21 set-up since 1993 and is regarded as instrumental in developing some of the players who subsequently went on to win World Cup in 1998 and the European Championships in 2000.

The move for Domenech would certainly appeal to the French contingent at the club, many of whom were understood to be considering their position in the wake of Tigana’s departure.
