The celebrated French coach is highly interested in acquiring our national team, with whom, as he said in his application, will be able to realize the Euro 2016 in France.

Among all candidates for BH selectors, Santini is coach with the best biography, considering that he won the French championship and the cup with Lyon, and as a selector of France has a gold medal from the Confederations Cup in 2003.

Jacques Santini is one of the most accomplished football managers in France. Together with Jean Michel Aulas and Bernard Lacombe he was involved in the transformation of Lyon into a French football giant.

Santini was chosen as “The best French coach” on 2002 by France Football and World’s The Best National Coach of the Year on 2003 by International Federation of Football History & Statistics (IFFHS) Santini replaced Roger Lemerre as France manager in 2002. He had already resigned from the position before Euro 2004, where France surprisingly lost to Greece in the quarter-final.

Santini took the managerial position at Premier League club Tottenham Hotspur after Euro 2004. He surprisingly announced his resignation after just 13 games. Officially, Santini left England due to personal problems, but it was widely reported that a series of disagreements with then Sporting Director Frank Arnesen led to his departure. Speaking in 2005, Santini said he quit partly because he felt agreements with the club were broken, but he admitted he “dug his own grave” by agreeing to join the club before the end of Euro 2004.
