Didier Deschamps sets his conditions for staying

What happens after this ad

A few weeks ago, everyone was only convinced that this 2022 World Cup would be Didier Deschamps’ last competition in charge of the Blues. And it was Zinedine Zidane who was to take over. But since then the situation has changed a bit, and the tendency would even be to sign a new contract. Certain information published byTeam even hinted at the possibility of seeing him stay until the 2026 World Cup!

According to information from RMC Sport, the ball is in his court and his mindset has evolved during this World Cup. In fact, he appeared to want to leave his position at the end of his contract, in December. But now he clearly opens the door to signing a new contract. But he sets conditions.

Two important conditions

First of all, he would probably like to have a fairly long contract. More than the two years that FFF seems to be offering him at the moment. We can imagine that he has the will to lead this new blue generation to this North American meeting in 2026. But that is not all. In particular, the coach wants the results of the audit mission launched by Sports Minister Amélie Oudéa-Castera in the FFF following certain testimonies that provoke internal dysfunctions.

These include allegations of sexual harassment against Noël Le Graët, the president of the union. The results are expected at the beginning of 2023 and Didier Deschamps will pay particular attention to them. We will therefore naturally have to wait a few more weeks to find out what the future will be like for Didier Deschamps. But the tendency will therefore rather be towards the extension.
