Dring a press conference in Paris, Swedish journalist Johanna Frändén, from the Aftonbladet newspaper, questioned Blanc about his decision to change his team's formation from 4-4-2 to 4-3-3.

But instead of giving his reasons, the former France boss belittled Frändén, who follows the fortunes of Zlatan Ibrahimović for the Swedish press.

"I mean, women talking football tactics, it's so beautiful," Blanc said.

"I think it's fantastic. You know what 4-3-3 means, don't you?"

Frändén responded by saying: "Yes. It's my job to know what it means."

Blanc, though, continued his sarcastic answers, replying: "I mean, there's a lot of ways of playing. Haha, I'm just joking."
