In a team dossier on the French team’s future, Noel Le Grat and Didier Deschamps answer each other for the rest of the adventure. For a former OM coach, there is no pressure.
This week, L’Equipe released a report on the future of the French national team, 100 days before the start of the World Cup in Qatar. At the moment, Didier Deschamps has not signed a contract extension. The president of the FFF, Noël Le Graët, explains to the sports daily that he will make a decision after the competition.
If the World Cup were mediocre, there would be a debate – Le Graët

“If Didier has done well at the World Cup, he almost has the cards in hand if he wants to continue. If the World Cup is mediocre, there will be a debate. He must maintain desire and faith. We are title holders, so I expect him to have the same ambition, knowing that we are the candidates. » Noël Le Graët – Source: L’Equipe (11/08/22)
Deschamps, ten years at the helm of the blues: With Le Graët, he’s still resigned or even married.

There is always an afterthought, which depends on the results. But this then, I don’t even think about it – Deschamps
After ten years at the helm of the French team, it’s time to take stock of Didier Deschamps. Despite rumors of Zinedine Zidane’s arrival as coach and the uncertainty surrounding his future at EdF, the former OM player and coach does not appear to be concerned.
“Ah well, only eight years that someone talked to me about Zidane? (Laugh). Frankly, this does not bother me. In my view, two things are important: the France team is above all else, and I am convinced that this is not the time to talk about all that, ahead of the World Cup goal that awaits us in Qatar in November. In every competition, the only truth is the result, in the World Cup as in the Euro. There is always an afterthought, which depends on the results. But after that, I don’t think about it. All this has no effect on me. For the players, they might have some, but it won’t change the way I prepare for the World Cup. I don’t look back. I feed on my experience, but just because I did things a certain way in 2018 doesn’t mean I’ll do the same again. I write all the time, and I keep track of the important stuff, but I don’t re-read it all the time, it’s useless, and the data isn’t the same. » Didier Deschamps – Source: The team (12/8/22)
His ten years at the helm of the Blues have not changed Didier Deschamps’ verdict: France’s squad remains the ultimate adventure, which he continues on the bench with similar success and enjoyment to his years. Player https://t.co/KyjdqS5Sgk pic.twitter.com/FeOPRcdhMX
