What are you at Domenech, you absolute clown?

Former France coach in Thailand for poker tournament training camp. Like Blood Sport with cards.

WITH HIS FOOTBALL reputation completely destroyed by a disastrous World Cup campaign in South Africa – as if it wasn’t in tatters already – former France manager Raymond Domenech has now, it seems, reinvented himself as a poker player.

He’s always fancied himself as a poet, actor and astrologist – now the bould Raymond is playing the role of a poker player.

This, admittedly brilliant, TV advert shows the ex-Les Bleus boss training in Thailand for a poker tournament.

The prize is a trip to South Africa, incidentally. Maybe Shay Given and Richard Dunne should enter.
