Blanc's Assistants Edit

Blanc Assistants

Blanc's two assistants

Blanc has two assistants. The duty of interpreter is chiefly the duty of Blanc's male assistant with the female assistant having said a grand total of one word in Japanese. However, she was the one who promptly produced player information when Blanc wondered about Kubota's former career in the U19 National Team.[1]


  • Blanc is most likely based on Philippe Troussier, an eccentric team manager also known as the "White Witch Doctor." He led Japan's team from 1998 to 2002, during which time he lead Japan to an Asian Cup victory and lead Japan to its first round of 16 World Cup finish during the 2002 World Cup.
