Exceptional guest of Europe 1 Sport this Thursday, Noël Le Graët, the president of the French Football Federation, assured that Didier Deschamps will be able to freely decide his future after the World Cup, if the Blues will finish the semi-finals in Qatar . The coach’s contract will expire at the end of the competition.
D-Day is fast approaching. In ten days, the 2022 World Cup will open in Qatar and France will then put its title back into play. Being one of the favorites to their own succession, the Blues almost have the obligation to achieve a good course. First to be in tune with their status but also to wash away the affront of a Euro 2020, completed hastily at the stage of the 8th finals.
Exceptional guest of Europe 1 Sport this Thursday, Noël Le Graët, the president of the French Football Federation recalled the objective set before the launch of the great world raout. France must at least reach the semi-finals. If necessary, coach Didier Deschamps will then have complete freedom to decide his future.
“If we finish in the last four, Didier in hand”, assured Le Graët at the microphone of Jacques Vendroux. According to him, the decision of the coach then produces no doubt. “I don’t have the impression that he wants to leave. As he was yesterday, he seems happy to me in his position as coach”.
Entry into lice on November 22
If the last four are reached and Didier Deschamps wishes to continue the adventure effectively at the head of the Blues and thus extend his contract, “he comes to Guingamp (city of residence of Noël Le Graët Editor’s note), he signs, and he leaves with his contract”, assured the president of the FFF could not be more clearly.
Before imagining themselves sitting at the semi-finalist table next December, the Blues will first have to get rid of an affordable group that includes Denmark, Tunisia and Australia. France will start a competition on Tuesday, November 22 against the Australian “Socceroos”. This Wednesday, Didier Deschamps unveiled the list of 25 players who will try to take up the challenge.
