Speaking to media on Tuesday, FFF President Noël Le Graët discussed France’s early EURO 2020 exit at the hands of Switzerland.
“The objective that I set was the last four. We should have got through this round. When you are winning 3-1 with 10 minutes to go, it is a shame. So, the objective was not attained, but there were so many others that were attained.”
“I did not have the time to see Didier. I arrived at 4am in the morning in Paris. I have been closed up since Tuesday morning. I have not spoken with him yet. We will have a phone call when he will be in Paris and we will see each other next week or the week after to discuss. I have not thought about that (his future). To continue the mission, we both have to be on the same wavelength. For the moment, as I have not seen him, I know nothing. With Didier, we need to spend a day with each other, that we chat and then at the end of the day, we will have a decision. I have learned that in life you should never make a decision in the heat of the moment. We are going to talk about what happened. The organisation was strong, unless there are things I don’t know about. This elimination is a bit frustrating in terms of the federation’s economic situation (running a deficit for the first time in a long time). We hoped to go further. But we were all very happy when he was winning everything.”
