‘To be honest, for the moment, I have not really thought about that because I fixed myself something whereby in the first few months I would not take any decisions,’ he told local outlet L’Est Republicain
 
‘So I have not been too worried with that. It is not even going through my head.
 
‘I am not retired. If I was, I would have been for a long time. I will be 69 in October.
