FFF President Le Graët fails to give definitive answer on Deschamps future

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.”
