“If Didier has a good World Cup, he almost has the cards in hand if he wants to continue. If the World Cup is average, there will be discussion. He must keep the desire and the faith. We are title holders, so I expect him to have the same ambition, knowing that we are rather favorites. » Noël Le Graët – Source: L’Equipe (11/08/22)

There is always an after, which depends on the results. But this after, I don’t think about it — Deschamps
After ten years at the head of the French team, it’s time to take stock for Didier Deschamps. Despite rumors of the arrival of Zinedine Zidane as coach and the uncertainty surrounding his future in EdF, the former OM player and coach does not seem to be worried.
“Ah well, only eight years that one speaks to me about Zidane? (Laughs.) Honestly, it doesn’t bother me. In my way of seeing things, two are important: the France team is above everything, and I am convinced that this is not the time to talk about all that, just before the goal of the Cup of the world that awaits us in Qatar in November. In each competition, the only truth is the result, in the World Cup as in the Euro. There is always an after, which depends on the results. But this after, I don’t think about it. On me, all this has no impact. On the players, it may have some, but it will not change the way I prepare for the World Cup. I don’t look in retro. I feed on my experience, but just because I did things a certain way in 2018 doesn’t mean I’m going to do the same thing again. I write all the time, I keep track of important things, but I don’t reread all the time, it’s useless, the data is not the same. » Didier Deschamps – Source: The Team (12/08/22)
His ten years at the head of the Blues have not changed the judgment of Didier Deschamps: the France team remains for the coach the ultimate adventure, which he continues on the bench with a success and a pleasure similar to his years. player https://t.co/KyjdqS5Sgk pic.twitter.com/FeOPRcdhMX
