Bayern's Sagnol considers French retirement

Bayern Munich defender Willy Sagnol has admitted he could call time on his international career, but insists he will not rush into anything.

Sagnol could follow in the footsteps of compatriots David Trezeguet, Claude Makelele and Lilian Thuram who all announced their international retirement after France's dismal showing at Euro 2008.

Les Bleus crashed out at the group stage having failed to win a single game and the 31-year-old admitted at the time that he needed to re-evaluate matters claiming he 'wanted to take the time to digest France's elimination before deciding about his future in the team'.

Having talked matters over with France coach Raymond Domenech, Sagnol will make a firm decision either way before Les Bleus' first World Cup qualifier against Austria on September 6.

'I simply haven't decided anything,' Sagnol told Bayern Munich's official website. 'The coach told me it would be a shame if I stopped now.'

Sagnol has won 58 caps in an eight-year career with France.
