France's national team soccer coach Laurent Blanc arrives at Merignac's airport, near Bordeaux southwestern France, May 7, 2011, before two inquiries set up by the ministry and federation. French Sports Minister Chantal Jouanno will announce on Monday the initial findings of a probe into alleged racial discrimination within the soccer federation. Blanc, who helped win the 1998 World Cup as a player, has been implicated in the affair but has yet to attend a Ministry hearing into accusations the federation wanted quotas for African and Arab players in youth teams.
