While Deschamps should extend until 2026 with the Blues, the Zidane rumor should logically make less noise.
Deschamps will continue his mission at the head of the French team. According to information from the Parisian, he and his supervisor Noël Le Graët have agreed to continue their collaboration until 2026.
Four more years to ward off the Zidane specter
“DD” absolutely wanted to re-enlist for four years. Why so long? So as not to be disturbed in his work by the incessant rumors of his succession. His previous term was marked by the threat of Zinedine Zidane and he doesn’t want to go through that again. “The duration of the contract was the only doubt and if he signed for four years, it was to avoid being confronted with the Zidane rumor,” said L’Equipe journalist Loïc Tanzi.
The 2018 world champion coach is therefore not ready to give up his place. A news that should delight many supporters. But, she might also make some people cringe. Vikash Dhorasoo, for example, said he was wary of this renewal. “It’s a huge risk. Imagine if there is a failure at the Euro. And there was already one at the last European championship. Deschamps when he loses, he still wins. We will not see Zidane again before 2026”, he confided on the channel The Team.
