Soccer. World Cup 2022: Didier Deschamps will decide his future in blue
Didier Deschamps gave no clues on Saturday evening when discussing his future at the head of the Blues after the French team qualified for the semi-final. “I have the hand, well I will decide (smile). I’ll be there for the half, already, and then we’ll see. Everything in its time. It is very good to achieve the objectives. The president is happy, many people are happy. But I want to savor. I’m thinking of Wednesday, I’m not thinking of other things.
The president of the French Football Federation Noël Le Graët, whose mandate runs until the end of 2024, had, before the competition, revealed that the coach, at the end of his contract after the World Cup in Qatar and not extended after the failure of the last Euro, would choose what would be his future in blue if he reached the last four. This week, he had even reviewed his speech in interviews granted to Figaro, then to Telegram: the Breton affirmed his wish to see his coach remain, even in the event of defeat in the quarter-finals against the English.
Euro 2024 in sight?
The situation couldn’t be clearer now. Deschamps, whose longevity at the head of the Blues is a record, will decide his fate alone. At 54, will he want to continue beyond this World Cup to get Euro 2024 in Germany, the only trophy he lacks as a coach? Only he knows. “For me, this position is not exhausting, he confided to us in an interview granted before the World Cup. I am in the environment in which I always wanted to be. I am in good shape “.
