Benzema is useless, says Domenech

Former France manager Raymond Domenech has declared his interest in replacing Jurgen Klinsmann as U.S. national team manager. The 60-year-old former Lyon player oversaw the France national team for the 2006 and 2010 World Cups, which culminated in a losing final appearance and a group stage exit, respectively. Now, he reportedly has his sights set on the United States.

"There's a job I'd rather have," Domenech said in an interview with But! Lyon. "Besides, I know (Jurgen Klinsmann), he knows and he doesn’t care! This post is the coach of the United States. I'd like to see this country. Add to that, the Americans are always qualified (for the World Cup)."

Among the reasons Domenech stated was the easy path he believes the United States has to qualify for the World Cup every four years.

"At the same time, it is easy in North America: there are only two games to qualify for the World Cup. South America is already a paradise, but the North is even better! You play Canada, Mexico. You'll walk in the Islands," he said.
