Deschamps’ words for Griezmann
Antoine Griezmann confined to the rank of vice-captain of the Blues, Didier Deschamps had a few words to his request this Tuesday evening.
L’Equipe this Tuesday evening again assures us: » Not having been appointed captain of the Blues has affected Antoine Griezmann. To the point of wondering about his international future after this gathering. “Obviously aware of the disappointment of Matelassier after having preferred Kylian Mbappé to succeed Hugo Lloris as captain of the Blues, Didier Deschamps had words of comfort to interest him this evening.
» He knew very well that he had the possibility to be, I exchanged with him, but despite everything it is not giving to Kylian and taking away from Antoineblows the coach of the Blues in an interview granted to Tout le Sport. Antoine, he has something more too, he has always been a very important player, I have always maintained my confidence in him during much more difficult times for him. Antoine, because of what he does in the field, is a unifier in the driving sense. He was, and he would remain so in the future. »
However, the choice in favor of the PSG striker seems to have been obvious for the Bayonais: “ He filled all the boxes to be one at one time or another, it is natural and logical that Kylian is, from the moment he wants it too. […] The costume must not be too big, you must have the shoulders to carry it, but there is no problem on that side. »
