Stop or again?
The story of Didier Deschamps at the head of the France team should continue well, after the interview this Thursday between the coach of the Blues and the boss of the FFF.
A fruitful interview since, according to our information, there is indeed a common desire to continue the adventure, even if the extension of the coach of the Blues is not yet recorded.
The formalization could take place at the very beginning of January, at the first federal assembly of the year on January 7, or even later in the year.
" I love it.
I believe he loves me.
We should be able to manage.
But no bar.
It's not done, ”briefly told us the president of the French Football Federation.
The trend is therefore clearly optimistic for the future of "DD", but there is no urgency to sign a new contract.
The start of the qualifiers for Euro 2024 does not take place until March 25 with the reception of the Netherlands at the Stade de France.
Also should not be overlooked that the announcement of his extension could be used to the advantage of Noël Le Graët, regularly jostled at the head of French football.
On the merits, there is no significant sticking point between the boss of the FFF and the world champion coach in 2018. The discussions around his contract currently focus much more on his room for maneuver and the means available to him. their willingness to work, rather than the duration or amount of their salary.

More concretely, the coach of the Blues should continue for at least two years until Euro 2024 in Germany, or even until the next 2026 World Cup in the United States, Mexico and Canada.
It remains to be seen what Didier Deschamps will sign.
A contract for only two years, with two optional years until the next World Cup or even a direct extension of four years?
No hypothesis can yet be ruled out.
