Glenn Hoddle is among the favourites to become the new manager of France after being interviewed by the French Football Federation in Paris on Wednesday afternoon.

The former England coach has been out of work since losing his job as manager of Tottenham in September, but has received strong interest from the French as they seek to appoint a replacement for Jacques Santini - who was officially unveiled as coach at White Hart Lane on Wednesday.

Hoddle sent a fax to the FFR on Tuesday and they immediately invited him for an interview, which took place in Paris the following day.

His main rivals for the post appear to be former France captain Laurent Blanc and former Fulham boss Jean Tigana, although Tigana might be ruled out as he is facing a High Court case against the Craven Cottage club in October - during the World Cup qualifiers - over his transfer dealings at the club, which could last for three weeks.

Former England manager Glenn Hoddle looks to be out of the running to be France coach.

The French Football Federation confirmed on Friday that just three men remain in the running for the role and reports in France indicate that Hoddle is not on the short-list.

Hoddle and ex-Senegal boss Bruno Metsu had been seen as outsiders since announcing their candidature, with Laurent Blanc, Jean Tigana and Raymond Domenech the front-runners.

Metsu withdrew his interest once it became apparent he was an outsider, but Hoddle remained keen.

Rene Girard, a former assistant national team coach, was also on the initial list of six contenders, and he is likely to be the third man ruled out of contention.
