Total confidence: Didier Deschamps will remain France manager until 2024, according to Le Parisien

They want to continue adding titles together with the former player. Didier Deschamps will continue as France’s national coach until Euro 2024, once he has achieved the goal of qualifying for the World Cup semifinals, the newspaper Le Parisien publishes this Sunday.

The president of the French Football Federation, Noël Le Graët, had announced before the tournament that Deschamps could decide his future if the “bleu” team, the current world champion, reached the semifinals of this tournament.

And Le Parisien recalls that Deschamps himself has been privately confident for some time that he would like to remain in the position until Euro 2024, which will be played in Germany, if France qualifies for the final phase.

The eventual continuity of “Didi”, as he is known in French football, would be an insurmountable obstacle, at least temporarily, to Zinedine Zidane’s aspirations of reaching the position in the event of his departure.

French coach since 2012, Deschamps has won the 2018 World Cup and the 2021 League of Nations, but could not win the 2016 Euro Cup, played in France, in which he was a finalist but lost to Portugal.

According to Le Parisien, the 54-year-old Deschamps is keen to attempt one last shot at the Euros as he is confident of keeping almost all of his current group, with a mix of illustrious veterans and promising youngsters led by Kylian Mbappé.

It should be noted that France has been making an outstanding participation in the 2022 World Cup. Those led by Deschamps beat England and are in the semifinals. Now they must face Morocco, if they want to reach the final in Qatar for the second time in a row.
