After the 2022 World Cup, former French Football Federation president Noel Le Gratt decided to extend the tenure of France coach Didier Deschamps until 2026 without warning Comex. Compared to the duration of this new lease, the choice remains entirely with Guingamp’s former boss.
“Who wouldn’t play Didier after losing to a shoe in a World Cup final? You choose him yourself. Didier said he would leave when he wanted to go without asking for a round, even if it was two years, four years or six. Old age… The couple we assembled was never led by money,” assures Le Grat in his daily column for L’Equipe.
As a reminder, despite the crisis at FFF, Deschamps’ contract was indeed endorsed by Comex.
