France Already Thinking About Zidane: If Deschamps Doesn’t Reach the World Cup Semi-Finals

Zinedine Zidane’s dream to coach the France national team could come true in the coming months. Almost everyone points to the former Real Madrid coach as the potential successor of Didier Deschamps, with the French Football Federation setting Les Blues’ objective for the upcoming World Cup.

As reported by Marca, President Noel Le Graet revealed that should France reach the semi-finals, Deschamps will be called to decide whether he would be willing to continue in charge of the team.

“We both agree that we will see each other right after the World Cup,” Le Graet told L’Equipe.
“If we reach the semi-finals, it’s his choice. If he feels motivated to continue, there won’t even be a discussion about it because he will have earned it. If we’re not in the last four, we’ll have to talk about it. In that case, I have the upper hand.

“It depends on the match. It’s not the same for us to be eliminated by a world champion or by another team. But if Didier’s France are not among the four best teams in the World Cup, it is not certain that he will continue.

“I spent Wednesday with him. I don’t feel any fatigue on his part. His thing is the French national team, the love for the jersey. I have absolute confidence in him.”

Meanwhile, Zidane has always acknowledged that he wants to coach the national team, with whom he won a European Championship and a World Cup as a player.
