France team: Le Grat does not really reassure Deschamps

At the end of the failed campaign in the League of Nations, the president of the French Football Federation, Nol Le Grat, asked to see the coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps. The leader still does not promise the technician anything in the long term.

France team: Le Gra

Le Grat continues to team up with Deschamps…for now.

While he used to be extended before each major competition, the coach of the France team, Didier Deschamps, will approach the 2022 World Cup with particular pressure.

Indeed, the president of the French Football Federation, Nol Le Grat, has already announced that the future of the technician, whose contract expires at the end of the year, will only be discussed after the big planetary meeting.

The Grat supports Deschamps

Weakened by the Euro 2021 fiasco, DD did not help his case in June with the catastrophic campaign in this 3rd edition of the League of Nations: 2 draws, 2 defeats and an elimination already act for the Final Four . Of course, there is no question of turning everything upside down for a few months of the World Cup and the Basque retains the confidence of his boss.

Didier (Deschamps) 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. For the moment, we are in total harmonyassured Le Grat this Saturday in the columns of L’Equipe, finding extenuating circumstances for the technician. You don’t have to tell stories. We did not show the face of world champions. Although I think the schedule did not help us.

If we won, we’ll take out the paperclips. But if we lost…

Despite this reaffirmed support, the double world champion will have a little discussion with his employer. He will come and spend a day with me Guingamp. Spending some time together isn’t bad. I really like those moments. I invite him to the month of July, we are going to talk about the organization of the World Cup, quietly in the lead. We need to see what we did well, what we did wrong and what we can improve. For me it is necessary, explained the leader. Invited to express himself in the long term, the Breton did not necessarily prove to be very reassuring for his coach.

As I have always said, there will be no extension of his contract before the competition. (…) It is better to carry out analyzes after the World Cup than before… If we have won, we will take out the paperclips. But if we lost, we might have to discuss, slid the 80-year-old man. It remains to be seen whether this new configuration, pressure, will allow Deschamps to give the best of himself or will disturb him. All while Zinedine Zidane, in no hurry to respond to requests from Paris Saint-Germain, is biding his time…
