Speculation and uncertainty continues to surround the future of France coach Laurent Blanc after he held talks with the French Football Federation.
The 46-year-old will be out of contract on June 30th, with reports suggesting he may leave the post following their quarter-final exit to world and European champions Spain at Euro 2012.
Les Bleus' elimination at the tournament came in the wake of reported dressing room unrest and infighting following their defeat against Sweden in the final Group D game.
Blanc spent much of Thursday in a meeting with FFF president Noel le Graet, and the governing body have announced both parties will now take time to consider their respective positions.
A statement on the French Football Federation website said: "Noel le Graet and Laurent Blanc held a lengthy meeting during the day on June 28.
"Following their discussion, the president of the FFF and the coach agreed to give time for reflection."
Blanc has been linked with the vacancy at Premier League club Tottenham and he confirmed a decision would be made on his France future within the next two days.
"Our meeting did not last all day because I had other commitments," he told L'Equipe.
"But everyone said what they had to say, including about the Euros.
"We have many things in common but it is also a personal decision concerning me. We gave ourselves a deadline of 48 hours."
