Zidane Will Not Replace Deschamps As France Coach- FFF

by admin

Zinedine Zidane will not replace France World Cup winning Coach, Didier Deschamps.

French Football Federation (FFF) President, Noel Le Garet said the Federation has never considered “Zizou” to take over from Deschamps.

Deschamps led France to victory at the 2018 World Cup, joining Brazil’s Mario Zagallo and Germany’s Franz Beckenbauer, as the only men to have won the trophy as both player and coach.

He had signed a contract that will keep him in charge of the French national team till 2020 even before he led the national team to win the World cup in Russia


“We haven’t thought about it. Didier’s in place until 2020. Me too. We’ll see,” he told RMC.

“We have a contract until 2020. Even if it had gone a little less well, I had said he would be present until that date. And now we won, and in what a way!

“You don’t get anywhere without work. Didier and his staff spend hours watching this or that player, and opponents. There’s no improvisation.

“There’s sometimes luck, you need a little bit, like a shot going in off a post. But the work carried out by Didier and his team is considerable.”

Zidane stepped aside as Real Madrid manager in May after winning the Champions League three seasons in a row.
