The Frenchman is unlikely to be considered as a candidate for the Gunners job if it becomes available with his Guingamp side finishing 10th in Ligue One this season. He did however have some success during his two year spell in charge at PSG between 2009 and 2011, but he was sacked in favour of Carlo Ancelotti by the club’s new owners with his team top of the league.
Speaking to TV channel RMC (quotes via Foot-sur7), Kombouare said:
“I have two years of contract [left], a president who trusts me. It’s complicated morally. I do not hide that if Arsenal comes to fetch me, I will knock at the door of the president.”
The 53 year old is known for his attacking brand of football, and is a respected coach in France after a highly successful playing career with both Nantes and PSG. As a player, he won the Ligue One title once with PSG, as well as the French Cup twice and the League Cup once. As a manager, he won the Ligue Two title with Valenciennes, the French Cup with PSG and gained promotion with Lens to Ligue One.
