City midfielder Samir Nasri claims that PSG have no competition in French football and would struggle at places like Stoke.
But Blanc has hit back, saying: “We were happy to avoid playing the two ogres of European football, Barcelona and Bayern Munich and you can add a third one into that, Real Madrid.”
Blanc had a major bust-up with Nasri when in charge of the French national team.
The midfielder was exiled after a row following the Euro 2012 finals and has since retired from international football.
Blanc refuses to accept Nasri’s opinion and insists French football is no less intense than the English game.
