Bordeaux coach Jean Tigana revealed today that his current employers would probably be his final club.

"I think this could be my last club because I might take my footballing retirement early," Tigana, 55, said in an interview with regional daily Sud-Ouest.

"As things stand, I'll go until the end of my contract [which runs until June 2012]. We'll talk about it with [Bordeaux president] Jean-Louis [Triaud] at the end of the contract."

Tigana, a member of the heralded 'Magic Square' midfield that was the heartbeat of France's 1984 UEFA European Championship-winning side, has previously coached Lyon, Monaco, English side Fulham and Turkish outfit Besiktas.

He returned to management with Bordeaux in May this year, having spent three years out of the game after leaving Besiktas.

He won 52 caps for France, scoring one goal, and represented Toulon, Lyon, Bordeaux and Marseille at club level.
