Future of France manager Corinne Diacre to be decided in March

As reported by RMC Sport this afternoon, the French FA’s executive board has announced its intention to discuss the future of women’s national team manager Corinne Diacre at its meeting, to be held on March 9.

Several national team players, including captain Wendie Renard, recently announced their withdrawal from Les Bleues – just months before the World Cup kicks off – notably citing issues with its management.

Eric Borghini, a member of the board, announced to the press that a small group of committee members would be tasked with examining the future of the under-fire coach. 

The group consists of Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas, Strasbourg chief Marc Keller, former French international and current treasurer Aline Riera, and another former Bleue now at the FFF in Laura Georges. They will present their conclusions at the next board meeting, with Borghini indicating that the FFF hopes to be able to make a decision by then. Diacre’s former assistant Eric Blahic is reportedly the favourite among the players to take over.
