France Football Federation Speaks On Replacing Deschamps With Zidane

The French Football Federation (FFF) President, Noel Le Graet, has insisted they have never considered replacing Didier Deschamps with Zinedine Zidane.

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

The frenchman has already signed a contact extension until 2020 before the tournament and Le Graet is adamant that the contract would be respected regardless of what happened 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 down as Real Madrid manager in May after winning the Champions League three seasons in a row.
