World Cup: "You're lucky I'm not in front of you", Koundé's collar irritated Deschamps


Asked at a press conference about the gold chains that Jules Koundé had to remove shortly before the match, the French coach

Not happy Deschamps.

The French coach reacted to the chain that Jules Koundé had to remove shortly before half-time in the round of 16 between France and Poland.

The wearing of jewelry is prohibited by Ifab, the council of the international football association, and the former OM coach was questioned about it.

Direction 1/4 🙏🏾👏🏾✅

An English journalist first asked the coach if the referee had ordered the player to remove the chain because they were related to the LGBT movement.

"It's not for that but because it's not allowed," replied Deschamps.

Players are not allowed to wear bracelets, necklaces or watches.

Footballers risk injuring themselves or an opponent with such objects.

The coach admitted that he did not really know the importance that Koundé attaches to his channel, but it would obviously be better if he did not forget to leave it in the locker room before playing.

“I don't know what he has on his collar, I know that Jules is a bit of a superstition, specified Deschamps.

He has it in training.

I don't know the meaning.

I told him moreover:

you are lucky that I am not in front of you, otherwise…

Finally, the 54-year-old technician admitted that the tricolor staff had forgotten: "The referee had warned us that as soon as there was a stoppage in play... The players are not going to play with a watch or glasses either. Sun.

It's not allowed.

I thought he took them off but apparently he didn't.

It's our fault.
