Football players have all said it, this new period of international matches in June was one too many. With four matches to play for most teams, or even five for Italy with the Finalissima lost to Argentina (0-3), the players ended this 2021-2022 season exhausted. Moreover, this gathering did not go very well on the sporting level for the France team. Defending champions, the Blues sank in the League of Nations with draws against Croatia (1-1) and Austria (1-1), and two defeats against Denmark (1-2) and the Croats in the return ( 0-1).
As a result, the 2018 World Champions can no longer qualify for the Final Four and will therefore soon lose their title which they have provided to put back into play. What to call into question the future of Didier Deschamps? Asked by the daily The Team after the executive committee of the French Football Federation which was held on Friday morning, the president of the FFF Noël Le Graët retains full confidence in his coach: “Didier is no less involved. The death of his dad disturbed him. But he did his job as a coach normally. There has been no change. I have full confidence in him.”
“There will be no extension of his contract before the competition”
Under contract until the end of the season, namely after the 2022 World Cup to be held in Qatar, Didier Deschamps will therefore still be on the Tricolor bench for this competition. As the boss of the FFF explained, the former coach of Olympique de Marseille will come and meet him at Guingamp to talk about all this, as well as this long-awaited World Cup. But for the future of DD and a real decision, we will have to wait. “At the moment, we are in total harmony. But as I have always said, there will be no extension of his contract before the competition.a Noël Le Graët also released to the French media.
“Let’s wait for the World Cup (…) It is better to do analyzes after the World Cup than before … If we win, we will take out the paperclips. But if we lost, we may have to discuss., he chained on the future of Didier Deschamps at the head of the Blues. Patience therefore, while Zinedine Zidane, tracked by Paris Saint-Germain for the post of coach, has often been announced as the successor to the former defensive midfielder.
