France team: Dugarry votes Zidane and charges Deschamps for the first 80 minutes of the final


Exasperated by the first 80 minutes of the final lost by France, the 1998 world champion questioned the place of Didier Descham

Not sure that Christophe Dugarry went to celebrate the Blues at Place de la Concorde on Monday.

The 1998 world champion expressed all his "anger" in an interview with L'Equipe.

The reason for his irritation?

The lack of debate around the probable retention of Didier Deschamps as coach after 80 calamitous minutes against Argentina, despite a World Cup final played to the end (3-3, 4- 2, tab)

“I do not hide that I would prefer it to be


(Zinédine Zidane), I want to see something else, launched the fifty-year-old.

Deschamps, I hear what he says, but we cannot say that the France team belongs to everyone and keep it for twelve years.


For several years, Zidane has been the natural candidate for the succession of Deschamps

But if Deschamps stacks up again, Zizou will have to wait a little longer...

Dugarry criticizes the coach, in charge of the Blues for ten years, the absence of "explanation" on this first part of the final missed.

According to the former consultant, with Deschamps “you can never talk about football.

That we don't do it when we win, like in 2018, on the theme

I don't care, I won

, okay, eventually, but when you lose, you owe an explanation, you owe a debate, at least on the preparation for the match”.

The former Bordeaux player "does not even dare to imagine" the reactions that such a scenario would have provoked in 1998. He also insists on the change in status of the Blues for two decades.

“We are no longer the France of thirty years ago, which was part of the suckers, it's over!

Where is the requirement?

If we can no longer have this debate, it is because we are North Korea.

We have two stars, and we should have had a third.

To close this World Cup page, I need to understand where these eighty minutes come from.

Something must have gone wrong.

And I would like to know why.
