In an interview with the team, Didier Deschamps looked back on the course of the France team at Euro 2020. The French coach assures him that he takes full responsibility for this dismal failure.
The coach admitted to being solely responsible for this defeat and elimination in the round of 16 of the euro 2020 against Switzerland (3-3.5 TAB to 4), but he could not help but blame former Chelsea player Olivier Giroud. Unfortunately for him, this attack is difficult to pass for Internet users.
The tweeters denounced in particular the ingratitude of Deschamps towards the Milan striker. DD, who is due to announce his list of 24 players on Thursday, told the team during this interview that: “I have been honest and transparent. His situation at the club had more than deteriorated. I know very well what he did, and did very well. Olivier, it was in 2018, but now we are in 2021 and I am not here to give assurances “.
Statements that do not necessarily bode well for the 34-year-old forward, whose international career could end after 46 goals in 110 caps, five goals from Thierry Henry’s record. Olivier Giroud will have an answer on Thursday when the Blues are announced for the three qualifying matches scheduled for early September. However, after two complicated years at Chelsea, the former Montpellier player seems to have come back to life since his arrival in Milan in mid-July.
Taking full advantage of the unavailability of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who is slowly recovering from a knee injury, the Chambéry native shone in the preparation matches.
Already a scorer against Nice (1-1) for his first match in the Rossonero jersey, the French striker concluded in style with a brace against Panathinaikos (2-1) eight days ago. And the Frenchman hopes to confirm these successful debuts during his baptism in Serie A, this Monday, on the lawn of Sampdoria.
