Deschamps makes a decision about Benzema

This Sunday, at TF1in the performance TelevoetDidier Deschamps, the coach of the French team, discussed the Karim Benzema case.

For a week now, the case of the Real Madrid striker has been in the foreground again. Asked about Karim Benzema’s package for the 2022 World Cup, Didier Deschamps gave his version, quickly denied by the Real captain. Then Karim Benzema announced that he was releasing his version “for the people” soon, before the subject is evacuated, like the tricolor carriage.

Certainly TF1Didier Deschamps made the decision to continue on this path, avoiding the slightest shocking sentence: “I am not in the controversy. I was brought to speak to tell what had happened. But that’s a thing of the past for me. What’s important today is what’s ahead of us with the 23 players I’ve selected, in whom I have confidence regarding the two games we have to play.”

In addition, according to The Parisian, while a tribute will be paid to the neo-retired Blues (Hugo Lloris, Raphaël Varane, Steve Mandanda) this Friday, at the Stade de France, on the sidelines of the encounter against the Netherlands, Karim Benzema, guest, should Miss On Call. The Madrilenian would have decided to decline the invitation, while tension with the coach is running high.

Deschamps puts the finishing touches for a newcomer

Always on TF1, Didier Deschamps wanted to clarify his intentions regarding Wesley Fofana. The 20-year-old Chelsea defender was called up for the Blues for the first time on Thursday and was entitled to the Ivory Coast: “What do you have to do to get selected? It goes through confirmation through what they are doing with us and through what they are going to do with their club. I never selected a player to prevent him from making a different choice. Today it’s here. After that it’s always like I tell them, for those who come, it’s to come back.

Especially since a call-up to the French team doesn’t prevent a player from changing his mind, like Houssem Aouar recently, or Aymeric Laporte in the past.
