In five days, the suspense will end when Didier Deschamps will announce his list for the World Cup at 8 p.m. on TF1 news. If we already know that N’Golo Kanté and Paul Pogba will not be there, the suspense remains for other uncertain executives (Maignan, Varane, Koundé, Kimpembe…).
Simakan seduces people with the Blues!
But Didier Deschamps could pull a surprise out of his hat. As Foot Mercato indicates, Mohamed Simakan (two goals and five assists in all competitions this season), author of high-flying performances this season in the Leipzig jersey, especially during the Champions League return match against Real Madrid would have many supporters within the staff of the Blues.
Seduced by his physical qualities and his versatility, the former Strasbourg player also has the advantage of being versatile and could come to occupy the position of right piston, where the solutions are not numerous between a Jonathan Clauss not in top form these last weeks and a Benjamin Pavard who has never hidden his preference for the axis. Case to follow.
Didier Deschamps could well call on a newcomer to compete in the World Cup. Indeed, Mohamed Simakan, author of high-flying performances this season under the colors of Leipzig, would have many supporters internally.
