The head coach Les Bleus has no plans to enter the club’s management and hopes to see the Chelsea star win the highest personal award in football
Didier Deschamps opened the door to a contract extension with France and also called on N’Golo Kanter to win the 2021 Ballon d’Or.
Deschamps is currently preparing Les Bleus for the European Championships this summer, and their goal is to achieve better results in the 2016 final.
The 52-year-old player has entered his ninth year in charge of the national team, but his current contract has only 12 months left, and he hopes to obtain new terms after supervising their most recent major game.
What did you say?
“If my president agrees, I may continue to work after 2022,” Deschamps said RTL“People have to want to keep me, for that you need results. I will do other things at some point, but I thrive in this role as a manager.
“My contract is until December 2022, but today I did not consider becoming a club coach. I am very happy that all conditions are met.”
Deschamps’ record as the coach of the French team
Deschamps has been on the French sideline in the past 112 games, achieving 74 wins, 20 draws and 18 losses.
Under his leadership, Les Bleus reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 World Cup. Four years later, he won the match in Russia and defeated Croatia 4-2 in the final.
Like the characteristics of Kan
After another extraordinary season at Chelsea, Kanter was touted as the potential winner of this year’s Ballon d’Or. Last month he helped Chelsea win their second Champions League title in their history.
French teammate Paul Pogba has always been one of the supporters of the midfielder Football’s most prestigious individual award, Deschamps agreed that he will be a well-deserved winner.
“N’Goro, he has no record as a striker,” the French boss added. “He can score a few goals, but because of everything he has done, everyone must have watched his last game, especially the Champions League final. N’Golo is also a driving force.
“Golden Globe? He deserves it. You know the standards as I do, mainly about offensive players. When there are defenders or midfielders, it’s because there are no offensive players that really mark the football year.
“He is also one of the driving forces of the French team. He has his own position-he is small and has nothing to do with his size, but he is big!”
