Didier Deschamps: this outing of Olivier Giroud that he deemed inappropriate

Now focused on qualifying for the next World Cup, which will take place in 2022, in Qatar, Didier Deschamps returned to the failed Euro 2020 of the France team. During his interview for L’Equipe, the coach mentioned certain remarks by Olivier Giroud, which could have hampered the atmosphere within the group.

In his long interview, published this Friday, August 20 with our colleagues from The team, Didier Deschamps considered inappropriate an exit of his striker Olivier Giroud after a meeting between France and Bulgaria, before the Euro. Indeed, the new center-forward of AC Milan, had criticized Kylian Mbappé for not having given him enough the ball. An implication that can be interpreted as a remark against the game of the prodigy of PSG.

“I told him: he didn’t have to say that, that’s for sure. This generated small tensions over two, three days, “reproached Didier Deschamps.

The end of Giroud with the Blues?

If the words of Olivier Giroud do not seem to have passed, it is the level of the player who seems to have pushed him on the bench, for the benefit of Karim Benzema. Always very direct, Didier Deschamps, admitted to having been “honest and transparent” with the player with 46 goals for the France team.

“Since February, his club situation had more than deteriorated (…) Olivier and a few others it was in 2018. But today, we are in 2021 and I am not here to give assurances to whom whatever ”, announced Didier Deschamps.

A technical and physical problem that prompts Didier Deschamps to think, when he must announce on Thursday August 26 his list of selected for the qualifying matches for the 2022 World Cup in early September.

If Olivier Giroud has always been one of the coach’s trusted men, the striker may well have had his last experience with the Blues during the elimination of France against Switzerland.
