Didier Deschamps advises Mathieu Debuchy to leave Arsenal

In today’s French national team press conference, Didier Deschamps was notably asked about the situation of former France starter Mathieu Debuchy.

Deschamps had the following to say:

“Mathieu has not lost all of his qualities overnight. But he has played very little. He needs to face up to the competition at his club. I spoke to him in September. He is a player who is under contract at Arsenal. He is somebody who is rational and intelligent. You cannot pretend to be at 100% at international level when you play so little. Up to him to see what happens in December, January.”
