Quite a few question marks Came up about Didier Deschamps’ future In the French national team – following the painful dismissal In the quarterfinals of the Euro to Switzerland, Despite the fact that the tricolor led 1: 3 until the 80th minute. Although the president of the French association, Noel Lou Gray, put an end to the rumors when he announced today (Thursday) that the coach will continue until the 2022 World Cup in Qatar.
“The matter was settled within three minutes,” Gray told La Figaro. This means that the leading candidate to replace Deschamps, Zinedine Zidane, who resigned at the end of the season from Real Madrid, will have to wait at least until the end of next civil year to get the coveted job, which could cause Zidane to change direction and consider offers from senior clubs.
Deschamps has coached the French national team since 2012 and recorded 109 appearances on the lines, placing him second in the all-time table after Gaston Barrow (124). Beyond that the coach holds the second balance in nature in the history of the tricolor with 65 percent success, while only Jacques Santini is ahead of him with 79 percent success.
