Former France national team coach Raymond Domenech has declared his ambition to coach the USA as he believes "it's easy" to qualify for the World Cup through CONCACAF.
Domenech, 60, has been out of a job since his tenure with Les Bleus ended in their disastrous and controversial group-stage exit at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. After releasing a tell-all book about his time at the helm of the France team, Domenech now has his sights set on a return to the dugout on the opposite side of the Atlantic.
"There's one job I'd like to have. I know the person concerned [Jurgen Klinsmann], he knows that, and doesn't care. The job is coach of the United States," explained Domenech in an interview with But! magazine. "I want to discover the country. And the Americans always qualify."
Having gone through the arduous process of qualifying for three major tournaments with France, including taking them to the 2006 World Cup final, Domenech believes CONCACAF affords easier passage through to football's global spectacular.
"It's easy in North America. There are only two games to play and you're qualified for the World Cup," he said. "South America is already like paradise, but North America is even better. You play Canada, Mexico, you go for a walk in the islands..."
