EdF: Didier Deschamps’ joke on his controversial contract extension


By: Nicolas Gerbault

This Saturday morning the general assembly of the FFF was held during which Jean-Michel Aulas was appointed vice-president of the body. An event which, as usual, brought together several figures of French football, like the Blues coach Didier Deschamps. During his speech, DD also made a teasing outing, a year after announcing his (controversial) contract extension until 2026 in this same context, when Noël Le Graët was still president of the 3F.

I would like to reassure you. This year I am not going to announce the extension of my contractlaunched Deschamps in a humorous tone as reported RMC. And to continue on his prospects at the head of the Blues: we finished this group stage undefeated. Qualification in Greece with refereeing reasons… (laughing) At the end of the World Cup final in Doha with the stoppages of senior players, there was a transition with the appointment of the new captain Mbappé and vice-captain Griezmann . They assume this responsibility safely and off the field. The stadiums where we play are quickly sold out. We will have the honor in Germany of having 11,000 supporters present at each match. It’s important for the players.»
